TOKYO — Many sexual minorities in Japan are experiencing mental suffering, with nearly half of LGBTQ children and young people having thought about suicide in the past year, a recent survey has revealed. The survey conducted by Tokyo-based authorized nonprofit organization ReBit also found that one in seven LGBTQ youths aged between 12 and 19 actually attempted to kill themselves in the past year. The latest study unveiled that LGBTQ individuals are hurt in everyday conversations, such as when their parents refer to sexual minorities as “those on that side,” and feel isolated as they cannot consult anyone.
