Pride House Tokyo Legacy

“Pride House Tokyo” is a project aiming to provide various events and contents related to diversity at a limited hospitality facility during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Despite the postponement of the Games, various activities are ongoing.

On Sunday October 11, 2020 the Pride House Tokyo consortium opened “Pride House Tokyo
Legacy”, the first permanent LGBT center in Japan, which has also been recognized by the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee. The mission of “Pride House Tokyo Legacy” is to “contribute to the creation of a society in which all people can live equally and healthily without being left behind by their sexuality, and to create hope and experiences to overcome various divisions.” The Embassy of the Netherlands in Japan is a special sponsor to Pride House Tokyo and a member of the Pride House Tokyo Legacy consortium. We regard the establishment of “Pride House Tokyo Legacy” as a milestone in the movement towards society in which everyone is free to be themselves, regardless of who they are or whom they love.
