What is Pink Dot Okinawa?

This event is for the allies and supporters who stand in solidarity with the LGBT community, as well as people who wish to create a society where everyone can live together more easily. Here, everyone comes together dressed in pink to deepen their understanding while sharing and expressing their thoughts.

As tourism is one of the key industries in Okinawa, both allies and ally businesses are recruited to conduct awareness raising activities at the event, aiming to create an LGBT-friendly Okinawa that allows people to visit with confidence. The word “Ally” refers to those who understand and support sexual minorities and the LGBT community, and the same word is also used in Japanese.

The event is not restricted to sexual minorities such as LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender), but is also open to friends, families, and others who agree with the aims of the event. Pink dot is an LGBT event that started in Singapore in 2009 and has since spread throughout the world, including the US, Canada and Hong Kong.

In 2015, there were 28,000 people who attended Pink Dot Singapore, and 15,000 at Pink Dot Hong Kong.
