Japan Rainbow Camp

2020 U.S. – Japan Rainbow Camp for LGBTQ Families
By Angeline Acain

Although Japanese LGBTQ families don’t share the same freedoms as Americans, there are organizations in Japan working to change that. Nijiiro Diversity and partner groups, Good Aging Yells and Nijiiro Kazoku are working to improve the lives of LGBTQ families in Japan. Established in 2013, Nijiiro Diversity was the first organization in Japan to address workplace issues for LGBTQ people and remains a leader in LGBTQ rights activism. In 2015, Nijiiro Diversity published, LGBTQ Guide for Workplaces, and in 2018 they published, Transgender Workplace Handbook. The group also provides research, educational training, and consulting, and has worked with universities, government agencies, and 160 corporations including Goldman Sachs, Nissan, Panasonic, and Sony.

In October 2021, the group’s organizers held an event originally called, 2020 US-Japan Rainbow Camp, targeting LGBTQ families and LGBTQ youth that are interested in raising children. The event was originally scheduled to take place in Osaka in October 2020.
