Tokyo Rainbow Pride celebrates Tokyo’s LGBTQ community in performances and a parade held across two days. Read more below.
Thanks to our friends Thaddeus and Clyde Buenaventura of lightoverdarkness.com for these brilliantly joyful photos of Tokyo Rainbow Pride. The event celebrates Tokyo’s diverse LGBTQ community, but all are welcome. The events included a performance and booths in Yoyogi Park for LGBT-friendly businesses as well as the annual parade around the Harajuku/Shibuya area on April 28, 2019.
Thaddeus and Clyde tell us, “Initially, we drew inspiration from this great article about Shogo aka, Mr. Gay Japan. He was Japan's first delegate to participate in Mr. Gay World.
“Next, we are taking you to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!” Thaddeus and Clyde’s project in commemorating 2020 Tokyo Olympics is dedicated to Unicef, Wounded Warrior Project, and St. Jude Children's Hospital.
