Councilwoman Aya Kamikawa recounts her rocky path to becoming the first transgender elected official in Japan.

Culled from 100+ interviews conducted over 3 years in locations across Japan, Queer Japan features dozens of individuals sharing their experiences in their own words. Get to know a vibrant and inspiring group of human beings in a country with a unique history of queer expression.
