Tokyo Olympics also have their Pride House


Pride House acts as a refuge for LGBT people and an information centre in the build-up to and during sporting events, and the concept has been present in some form at every Olympic Games since Vancouver 2010.

Pride House Tokyo is the first permanent LGBT centre in the city and will provide various events and contents related to diversity at a limited hospitality facility during the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

Pride House Tokyo will spread information about LGBT people and LGBT people in sports, through various interactive initiatives, as well as provide information to sports-related groups and organizations.

Pride House Tokyo will procure operating funds by collecting donations and will distribute information related to sexual health, provide media guidelines, and provide a support network for anyone in need. 

Although same-sex marriage and adoption are still illegal in Japan, a majority of Japanese show their support, and a number of municipalities issue partnership certificates for LGBT couples.

Diversity is Pride!!
