Participants take part in the Tokyo Rainbow Pride parade in Tokyo. Thousands of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders (LGBT) and their supporters participated in the parade on Sunday to celebrate LGBT lifestyle and denounce prejudice and discrimination against sexual minorities. Amnesty International Japan released a proposal Tuesday May 2, 2017 to the government on measures that the country must take to tackle discrimination against LGBT people: hiding one’s sexual orientation or gender identity is still common, due to a fear of losing one’s job or facing discrimination, both in the public and the private sector. On health, they asked the government to remove gender identity from the classification of mental diseases, to abolish inappropriate requirements for obtaining legal gender recognition, to educate medical experts, and to set certain health treatments required by transgender people to be covered by the national health insurance and public health systems. 07/05/2017-Tokyo, JAPAN
