LGBT Japan: A and O’s Story

Life as lesbian parents in Japan – “They think I’m raising someone else’s child”.

A & O, a lesbian couple, have been together for more than twenty years. They have a five-year old son together but the family face constant discrimination as O cannot be recognized as the child’s mother under Japanese law.

In Japan, LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual) people still face pervasive discrimination at home with their families, at work, in education and access to health services. Take action and tell the Japanese government it is time to end discrimination.
