My History as a Sexual Minority: A Discussion on LGBT Issues with Bourbonne and Associate Professor Moriyama


We met with Bourbonne, Waseda alumnus, frequent television guest, and moderator of Japan’s largest sexual minority festival, Tokyo Rainbow Pride, and Associate Professor Noritaka Moriyama from the Faculty of Letters, Arts and Sciences. In the second part of this special, featuring these members of the sexual minority community, we follow up on our previous discussions on LGBT terminology, the LGBT media “boom,” and the relationship between the gay community and portrayals of erotica, to learn about the interviewees’ personal history and their feelings of self-affirmation.

With the rise of “onee talent,” and the popularity of television shows like What Did You Eat Yesterday? (TV Tokyo) and Osan’s Love (TV Asahi), we look back on the lives of our two guests and learn about their views on the LGBT community’s social perception.

#1 You can Live Without “Self-Affirmation”
