Japanese Women’s University to Accept Transgender Students

A Japanese women’s university said Tuesday it would admit transgender students who were born male but identify as female, a rare move in a country where LGBT rights lag behind other developed nations. An official at the education ministry said the move by Ochanomizu University in Tokyo was “likely unprecedented”, though he could not confirm if it was a national first, and praised the decision. “It is desirable that many universities take steps in the direction of understanding the needs of sexual minorities, though making such a decision is up to each university,” he said.
