Trans meetups in Tokyo

Tokyo is one of the most modern cities in the world. It’s often lauded for its blend of contemporary style and traditional Japanese culture. This actually reflects Japanese society of mixed values. When it comes to public opinion, majority have a positive outlook towards the LGBT. But this is not evident in the allowed rights they have for their LGBT people.

Getting to know trans women in Tokyo

Being trans in Japan is not exactly a modern concept. The concept might have originated from the edo period in Japan where men impersonated women in Kabuki Theatre. Male actors would play all the characters including women’s parts. They kept both attires inside and outside the theatre.

Despite this rich history, trans women in Tokyo still face silent discrimination. It’s a silent discrimination that affects their rights. Until now, they can’t change their legal gender without sterilisation. They can’t marry or live their lives freely. They face employment discrimination. So many of them remain closeted or live low-key lives.
