Freedom Toast Café: “Taiwan recognizes same-sex marriage”

7:00pm – 9:00pm
¥1,000 (on the door)

Want to discuss with like-minded people about human rights in English and meet new friends? Then come along to the Freedom Toast Café in Ochanomizu.

The special guest for this month’s cafe is Suki Chung—the Amnesty International Regional Campaign Coordinator for East Asia. She will join via Skype for a discussion about LGBTI rights in Taiwan. Taiwan has made history in the fight for equality for LGBTI people. In May 2019, Taiwan passed a law to make the island become the first place in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage. The discussion will include the impact of this law for Taiwan and the region and what can be done to protect the rights of LGBTI people in East Asia and Japan.

English-language support will provided if needed and there will be complimentary snacks and drinks too. The perfect chance to learn about human rights, brush up your English, and connect with like-minded people!
