In celebration of LGBT Pride Month, YouTube Japan has compiled a ‘Pride Playlist’ of 20 videos that offer insight about being LGBT in Japan.

The playlist is compiled for Japanese audiences with the idea of creating awareness, and as a result, all but three of the videos do not have English subtitles. However, for those of you learning Japanese, these videos are a good opportunity to hear how LGBT topics are spoken about in Japanese.

Enjoy!
