Fifteen gay couples united on Valentine's Day to challenge the refusal of the Japanese government

Fifteen gay couples united on Valentine's Day to challenge the refusal of the Japanese government
Same-sex couples of Japan united and declared that the government of the country violates their constitutional rights. Thirty people came to Tokyo District Court with different posters and slogans, like "Marriage for All Couples," "We Love a Friend." later, gay couples filed lawsuits.

“I’m ready to support this 'war' and my partner will join me,” Plaintiff Kenji Aiba told Yahoo!News.

Most gay couples are hoping that the Japanese government will reconsider this issue and allow same-sex marriages, which are valid in other countries. Last year, some municipalities introduced decisions for same-sex couples so that they could rent apartments together and be guarantors of each other, but their "partnership" attitude not legally verified. The current laws of Japan allow only bisexual marriages. For this reason, gays/lesbians are forced to hide their sexual preferences so as not to get insulted at work, school, university or at home. Transgender people have more obstacles.

Experts say that the development of the LGBT has lagged behind in this country, as people are afraid to show their preferences.

“Many of us don’t even know that their colleague, brother or friend can be a sexual minority. I think we need to relieve the pressure so that people don’t fear humiliation,” a lawyer-turned-politician Mizuho Fukushima said.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continues to argue against same-sex marriage.

"Our country has developed and introduced new developments for decades. Now, when most countries protect the rights of gay and transgender people, we continue to fight this. Our children need to know what a traditional family is with mom and dad. Only in this case, our country has a future," Shinzo Abe said.

"The introduction of same-sex marriage is something unknown and difficult. First, we have to study this issue and conduct relevant research," Abe added.

Despite all the bans, 15 same-sex couples teamed up on Valentine's Day and visited Tokyo District Court.

"We love each other and this does not violate any laws. We just want to be together, we are people, after all," Mr Kozumi and Mr Aiba said.
