The reality of everyday life for trans women in Japan

To mark International Women’s Day, a Japanese LGBT recruitment company highlighted the everyday stigma faced by trans women.

A heartfelt video showing the everyday stress and anxiety faced by trans women in Japan has been widely shared on social media. The LGBT focused recruitment company JobRainbow released the video, with the hashtag #ForAllWomen, for International Women’s Day and on Twitter alone more than 30,000 people so far have watched it.
The video shows three real Japanese trans women going about the city. One woman is nudged by a passing man and faces unwelcome comments.
Another woman dithers over whether to join the female line for a train carriage. Later, she hesitates before entering the female toilet.
It also shows a woman reading her phone. ‘Transgender women are biologically male, right?’ It says.
