With the globalization, the idea of recognizing same-sex marriage becomes more expanding throughout the world. Japan doesn’t want to be left out, especially the companies. Some Japanese companies have implemented LGBT inclusion policies and benefits for their employees. On the outside, the public seems to show their full support for the LGBT community In Japan. However, in the domestic sector there are still many dismays and disagreement towards the LGBT. Coming out as LGBT to the parents is especially very difficult. Many parents show disagreements and even lash out at their children who are a part of LGBT. This paper will examine the different points of view regarding LGBT in the domestic sector and the company sector using qualitative methods and analyzing the result of the value difference.
