Amnesty International Japan released a proposal Tuesday to the government on measures that the country must take to tackle discrimination against LGBT people. The measures cover situations ranging from discrimination in workplaces to treatment at detention facilities when they commit crimes to when natural disasters hit. The report maintains that the government needs to solve problems in LGBT health care stemming from discrimination and lack of awareness of needs by medical professionals. The proposal also addresses the issue of LGBT family life and benefits.
