Education, Traditional & Culture


Supporting love in all its forms and bringing communities together between the UK and Japan

HYPER JAPAN has been celebrating Japan and Japanese culture since its inception in 2010. We want to take the love that has made HYPER JAPAN a cultural institution and spread this love to even more people around the world.
Starting in June 2021, we are celebrating Pride Month with a whole month of online activity to celebrate the LGBT+ community and Japanese culture. Our
website will also be redesigned to affirm our support.

In both the UK and Japan ,there exists a vibrant and passionate LGBT+ community. Progress towards a diverse and inclusive Japan continues. In 2020, the Employment measures act was revised, and 74 local governments put in place a system of Civil Partnerships. There are high levels of support for samesex marriage and many popular Japanese celebrities have advocated for LGBT+ rights.
Although there are differences between the two countries, there is no denying the importance of addressing LGBT+ issues in both, and HYPER JAPAN has always connected diverse communities across the UK, Japan and the world.

As an ally organisation, HYPER JAPAN supports the LGBT+ community in the UK and Japan, and pledges to amplify queer voices throughout Pride Month in
the hope of inspiring a better world for everyone.

HYPER JAPANはアライとして、日本をもっと好きになってもらえる取り組みを続けていきます​

2010年にはじまったHYPER JAPANは、これまで日本が好きな様々な方に愛され、ここまで続けてくることができました。皆さんの愛を吸収して育ったHYPER JAPANは、より多くの方とこの愛を育んでいきたいと願っています。​


 イギリスは、性別や性的指向によって差別することは違法であり、学校教育の一環として若いころから多様性や平等を学ぶ機会が設けられ、公的サポートも充実している国です。日本では2020年に労働施策総合推進法が改正され、74の自治体でパートナーシップ制度が導入されました。徐々にではありますが、『ダイバーシティ・インクルージョン社会の実現に向けて』取り組みが進んでいます。各国で取り組みに違いがあれど、当事者がいることには変わりはありません。日本とイギリスを長年繋げてきたHYPER JAPANだからこそ、より多くの方に知っていただきたいことがあることを理解しています​

 アライとは、英語で「同盟、支援」を意味する「ally」が語源で、当事者であってもなくてもLGBTQ+に代表される性的マイノリティを理解し支援するという考え方、あるいはそうした立場を明確にしている人々を指す言葉です。私たちHYPER JAPANはアライとして、賛同いただける企業や団体の皆様と共に、より良い社会を目指してイベントを企画・運営していきたいと強く願っています。皆様のご賛同、お待ちしております。​
