Petitioning The candidates for Tokyo Governor

Please promise voters to protect the human rights of sexual minority in your campaign!


It is said that sexual minorities account for approximately 5.2% of the population. Naturally, there are many living in Tokyo. If the number of eligible voters in Tokyo is 10,740,000, that means there are approximately 558,000 voters who are sexual minorities. This is a considerable number.

There are many sexual minorities with diverse life style,however it feels like the metropolitan government do not try to face facts.

Many sexual minorities and their supporters want the Tokyo government to understand this, are hoping for change, and are paying careful attention to this election.

Sexual minorities are not some special kind of being in a far away place. We are everywhere. 
There are sexual minorities working in the Metropolitan Government Office. 
And, of course, there are sexual minorities among the friends, acquaintances, and family of the person who will become the next Governor of Tokyo.

"WE ARE HERE!"

The sexual minorities who are already living next door to you, like all residents, wish for Tokyo to become a place where one can be oneself.
