Japan: Court Said Lack Of Equal Marriage Is Unconstitutional
There are many people who still oppose LGBTQ rights in Japan but a historic victory has taken place.
Japan has been a country that's seen little progress in laws and attitudes towards LGBTQ rights. Recently, however, lawmakers have refused to protect LGBTQ people against discrimination. It’s important not to forget about those who are still fighting for equality elsewhere in Asia, like Hong Kong where a court didn't want to recognize marriage equality.
