Parents of LGBTQ children in Japan call for anti-discrimination legislation


Parents of LGBTQ children in Japan have called for the enactment of legislation that clearly stipulates discrimination is unacceptable. The group held an online news conference on Sunday. The event was organized after Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio dismissed a top aide earlier this month for making discriminatory remarks about same-sex couples. The issue prompted a non-partisan group of lawmakers to initiate a bill that facilitates understanding of LGBTQ people. But some members of the main governing Liberal Democratic Party are opposed to the inclusion of language in the law that clearly states “discrimination is unacceptable.”
