Info: In the run-up to International Anti-Homophobia Day on 17 May, there was a street action in Nagoya, Japan, on 13 May 2023 to mark the day.
Participants held placards such as “It doesn’t matter who you like!” and other placards in their hands, they appealed to people on the street to stop the persecution and prejudice that still continues in the world and in Japan, as well as the fact that until 17 May 1990 homosexuality was treated as a disease by UN agencies.
