Partnership Oath System to Be Launched!

Updated:2022年1月25日更新 print

Exposed to prying eyes in their social life, many sexual minorities (*) suffer from prejudice and discrimination. In some cases, same-sex couples have difficulty applying for rental housing simply because they are same-sex couples. Thus, sexual minorities face many problems in their social life.

To eliminate such discrimination and problems and help sexual minorities live without worry together with those who they would like to spend their life together regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity, we will launch the Fukuoka Prefecture Partnership Oath System.

Applicable to couples where both partners or one partner is a sexual minority, this system enables them to receive administrative services from the prefecture, including application for prefectural housing.

* Sexual minorities: Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender persons, and other minorities in terms of sexual orientation and gender identity
