Having always envisaged ways to create a society where each member of the LGBT community feels a sense of security and to suggest a life path for LGBT people who share similar worries and concerns, JLGA was founded. By acting as a neutral bridge between various members of society, JLGA aims to achieve the goals we have envisaged over the years via the following four activities.
As of 2016, our operations are only in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Yamanashi and Shizuoka, however, we are consistently expanding our areas of operation. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact us if you think that we can be of help to you even if you do not reside in the above areas.
The smile logo was designed using the first letter, J, of JLGA to represent “happiness.” On top of that, we intend to convey “neutrality” by aligning the two J’s symmetrically and “connections and mutual support between people and society”, by making the J’s look like two people taking each other’s hand.
Additionally, we used the color green in gradation to give a sense of safety and security. This signifies how JLGA truly values diversity where everybody is different, and is a firm believer that we need to deal with societal issues through not a single, but various perspectives.
