In this important contribution to international queer studies, sixteen Japanese lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transsexuals tell their stories. “Doseiai” (same sex love between men) has never been legally nor socially accepted in Japan. Until recently there were not even terms to describe women-loving-women. With a new courage and consciousness, Japanese queers are beginning to speak out.
