Tokyo’s LGBT parade will take place on Sunday, April 27 this year. Here’s information about the parade, and also about Rainbow Week, which extends across the public holiday. See you in Yoyogi park!

The mascot is a flying squirrel that lives in Shinjuku named Tobe. The name combines the Japanese word “fly” (飛ぶ) and the English word “to be” signifying personal expression.
