STORY TIME: LGBT & Homophobia in Japan

18 March 2015

1 in 4 experience homophobia

Tuesday 30th August 2016

JAPAN: A quarter of workers have been subjected to or witnessed homophobic attacks, according to a survey by trade union confederation Rengo.

Rengo demanded action to raise awareness and promote understanding, and four-fifths of workers surveyed said that such discrimination must be eliminated.

However, 35 per cent said they felt uncomfortable working with LGBT people.
