Re: Searching for Resources for Transgender and/or BIPOC Students interested in living in Japan

Dear Dr. Liz Miles,

For Japan, there are some organizations and spaces that your students can start finding resource.
I have summarized them so far as I know.

LGBTQ+ (Please google each organization, as I cannot make a link to each in the H-Japan.)

Re: Searching for Resources for Transgender and/or BIPOC Students interested in living in Japan

Greetings,

For trans or nonbinary students considering studying in Japan, the English-language Facebook group Stonewall Japan (https://www.facebook.com/groups/363276580456886) is a very supportive online community that has many trans and nonbinary members, mostly younger people, who live in Japan, have lived in Japan, or intend to move here. That would be a good place to ask specific questions and get general reassurances about daily life. 

Searching for Resources for Transgender and/or BIPOC Students interested in living in Japan

Colleagues, 

At my institution I have a fair number of transgender and/or BIPOC students who are interested in living in Japan (or S. Korea). Would someone kindly direct me to some practical resources for such students? They are primarily worried they may not have access to certain necessary resources (namely medical) or are interested in learning more about the lives of transgender and/or BIPOC young people in Japan/S. Korea. 

English-language resources are preferable, but I am willing to translate for the students. 

Thank you in advance, 

Liz Miles
