LGBT & Allies communities in Singapore started ‘Pink Dot’ in 2009, and same events has been held in cities in the U.S. or other countries.
The color of pink also reminds us of ‘PinkShirtDay’ which call for anti-bulling in schools. The day originated from an action by 4 students. They bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a male student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.
Having been inspired and moved by these activities, we decided to hold ‘Pink Dot Okinawa.’ We hope to enlarge more tolerant and inclusive society in / from Okinawa with global LGBT & Allies communities.
Okinawa is one of the most famous tourist areas in Japan and well-known for its mixed atmosphere with Japan and other asian areas. We hope that a great number of LGBT & Allies participants from all over Japan and foreign countries visit Okinawa and gather in ‘Pink Dot Okinawa.’
