Pride Month Info (Japan & Global!)

The month in which the world celebrates LGBTQ+ Pride is June every year, and LGBTQ+ History month is observed in October every year. Both of these months are important sources of representation and education for the community and help to inform everyone about both the history of and the modern-day LGBTQ+ community in an effort to continuously press on to more acceptance and normalization. This article from The University of Central Florida is a great read about why these two months are so vital.

If you’re in Tokyo during the month of April, every year there is a Tokyo Rainbow Pride event that you should definitely participate in! Here’s their website so you can always find out more information about it: https://tokyorainbowpride.com/english/
