Pride Center Osaka is the first permanent LGBTQ center in Osaka. Our center has become a precious place for LGBTQ people, people around them, and people who wish to know more about LGBTQ equality. The purpose of visit to our center is diverse. There are users who come to enjoy chatting with other users and our friendly staff. There are students who come to study about LGBTQ equality. There are also heavy needs for our in-person and online counseling. Many people also simply stop by at our center to hang out and read books. For both users and staff, Pride Center Osaka is a place where we can be ourselves. Our center begins its second year, but our history is still only at the beginning. Please support the stable operation of our center through monthly or single donations.
In this Pride Center Osaka 1 Year Anniversary Campaign, we have been introduce messages from the users every week during April and May.
This week, we would like to share with you the video we made from the messages from our users. Thank you very much for those who participated the Pride Center Osaka 1 year anniversary campaign!
