The Japanese Olympic Committee on Monday signed a framework agreement with the LGBTQ hub Pride House Tokyo to promote inclusiveness in the sporting world. JOC President Yasuhiro Yamashita said the move came about following last summer’s Tokyo Games, where the number of athletes who came out as LGBTQ was the highest ever. “It’s important to deepen our understanding (of the issue) in the world of sport in order to pass that on as a legacy,” Yamashita said during the signing ceremony. “We hope to put things into practice with their help.”
