Living in Liminality: LGBTQIA+ Identity in Japan

Y. J. Grote1, B. S Morrison2

1Kyoto Sangyo University, Japan; 2Utsunomiya University

This presentation discusses how certain cultural dimensions, combined with the importance of marriage and having children in order to have a place in society, have created a unique environment for the LGBTQIA+ community in Japan. Low visibility of LGBTQIA+ communities at university results in students having a liminal sense of belonging, existing simultaneously within and outside of society.

This presentation is informed by a series of in-depth interviews with LGBTQIA+ students in a university where the LGBTQIA+ community is largely invisible, as well as more informal contact with LGBTQIA+ students in a university working hard to make a more visible community.
