For the 3rd Year Gay Parent magazine Part of Japan Youth Study Tour

For the third year in 2016, the group, LGBT Youth Japan, met with Gay Parent Magazine’s publisher and editor Angeline Acain in New York City. The group is a Tokyo based organization educating Japanese youth about the LGBT support systems employed by other countries. Their goal is to help guide Japan towards becoming a society whose members embrace diversity and “can accept and love each other for who they really are inside.” The group was in New York City on a 10-day study tour meeting with a variety of LGBT organizations and businesses and included Gay Parent Magazine in their itinerary.
