Japan Wants LGBT Tourists to Visit its Disaster Zones

07/27/2018 | Pink News

Japan is hoping LGBT people can boost tourism in a region formerly plagued with natural disasters. The country’s Reconstruction Agency has launched an initiative to draw queer and trans people to visit the Tohoku region, according to the Japan Times.  Tohoku was devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011, which was reportedly the most powerful earthquake known to have hit Japan. The initiative is also reportedly creating spaces to welcome LGBT people in Fukushima, the state where there was a nuclear power plant disaster in 2011.
