Whether you find yourself somewhere under the rainbow umbrella or you’re an ally, welcome to Northern Japan! You may be a thousand kilometres from Ni-Chome but there’s still plenty to keep you busy up here in Tohoku and Hokkaido. My name is Nate and I am the Stonewall Japan Block One Leader.
I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to the 16th Annual Sapporo Rainbow March. This year, it is taking place on Sunday, September 15th. If you would like to get to know some other LGBTQ peeps in Block One, this is a great chance to do so. We will be meeting for breakfast before the march and there will definitely be an enkai after. RSVP on the Facebook event page or send me an email to let me know you’ll be there.
If you prefer to stay anonymous, there are people who can help. The number for the Tokyo English Life Line is 03-5774-0992 and they have people who are trained in LGBTQ issues who are there if you need to talk.
