"In Japan, you cannot say you are a lesbian. There are no lesbians among famous TV stars or other celebrities, so I didn't think there were any in this country at all, and this filled me with doubt. I decided to become a politician to change society, to deliver the message that we aren't ashamed to be what we are."
-- Japanese first lesbian politican Kanako Otsuji. She would be the first LGBT person ever elected to the Diet.
