Japan: End LGBTI discrimination & legalise marriage equality
In Japan, LGBTI people still face discrimination at home with their families, at work, in education, and in accessing health services.
Although a person can officially change their gender in Japan, they are then unable to marry and required to undergo sterilisation and gender confirmation surgery. Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity is against international human rights law and standards.
LGBTI people in Japan have waited long enough to be treated as equals. Call on the Japanese Government to end discrimination and legalise marriage equality now.
