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. A Best of Small Press Award Winner

The first ever in-depth view of queer life in Japan, these personal stories of Japanese Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transsexuals, edited and translated by Barbara Summerhawk, Cheiron McMahill and Darren McDonald, span generations. A Best of Small Press Award WinnerReview:
As American gay men, lesbians, and transsexuals continue to battle a conservative, Puritanical society for the right simply to be human, it is immeasurably valuable to hear the words, spoken with a courageous lack of ambiguity, of homosexuals and transsexuals fighting for the same right in a culture even more rigid and denying. In these essays and interviews, bright, brave, large-hearted people tell us of their efforts to live happily and, in the process, create a Japan in which they will be accepted as citizens. --Christopher Davis, University of North Carolina
