It is estimated that 1 in 13 people belongs to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) community in Japan. From May 22 to 28, three student clubs volunteered to help enhance the mood of the WASEDA LGBT ALLY WEEK organized by the Gender and Sexuality (GS) Center.

WASEDA LGBT ALLY WEEK is an initiative by the GS Center to celebrate and promote understanding in sexuality differences. The event also serves to embrace the LGBT community by gaining ALLY (supporters) who second the notion that everyone should respect others for who they are. Additionally, the GS Center hopes that by organizing such events the LGBT student community will feel comfortable being themselves on campus and understand that the school has got their back.
