OUT IN JAPAN project, 2015
by photographer Leslie Kee
Portraits of 111 Japanese LGBT people from teenagers to 60-somethings, including gay manga icon Gengoroh Tagame (田亀源五郎, top). The photos will be on exhibition at Gap’s flagship Harajuku store from April 21st to April 28th, coinciding with Tokyo Rainbow Pride.
In a country where fewer than 19% of major corporations offer workplace protections to their queer workers, Gap has been notable for its visibility as a supporter of LGBT rights. It’s nice to see The Gap champion the work of the great fashion photographer Leslie Kee, who was unjustly arrested in 2013 on obscenity charges in a targeted censorship campaign.
Reblog if Tagame is giving you life.
Video of Tokyo Rainbow Pride on Sunday, April 27, 2014Shot by Rio...
Around 14,000 people attended this year’s parade, including Japan’s first lady, Akie Abe (長谷川博史, pictured right in the video still above). Standing next to Mrs. Abe on the float is Hiroshi Hasegawa (長谷川博史), a well-respected HIV activist who also co-founded G-men magazine with Gengoroh Tagame (田亀源五郎) in 1994.
