Sexual Minority Issues and Human Rights Education in Japan
Ofuji, Keiko
Journal of Gay & Lesbian Issues in Education, v4 n4 p131-135 2007
The "Dowa" (Human Rights) education program has become an effective method of changing concept and situations of "Burakumin," a group of people that has been discriminated against in Japan. One educational strategy was to speak out their personal stories, which has become a trigger to some sexual minority teachers to come out, as well as others to establish a lesbian rights education program for adults and sexual diversity education courses at a national university.
