Tokyo Rainbow Pride (TRP) was held on Sunday the 7th of May 2017 and the eiffel crew was there to represent! We wanted to show our support for the LGBTIQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer/Questioning and Allied) community because love transcends all and our individuality is what makes us beautiful!
TRP is held at Yoyogi Park every year and the sun shone so brightly on our parade! eiffel has a special collaboration going with Amnesty International Japan, not only to raise awareness about the cause but to bring some much needed relief to those who need it most. This year Amnesty International Japan had a float and our contingent was glorious! Human rights supporters came from all over the world to march in the TRP parade as part of Amnesty International Japan and we were all one big party dancing around Shibuya and Harajuku!
eiffel and friends all dressed up, we wore flowers in our hair and rainbows everywhere! We thought, brighter is better so everything was an explosion of color! Balloons, flowers, sunnies, stickers, glitter, wigs, make up – you name it we had it! There’s no better way to spend Sunday than dancing around Tokyo, spreading the love and blowing bubbles, all for a good cause!

Were you at TRP this year? If you have any happy snaps we’d love to see them!
LGBTQIA rights in Japan are still quite a new concept and not talked about often. Many people choose to ignore it or disregard it, but it is an important issue. If you’d like to get involved with Amnesty International Japan and LGBTQIA rights, then click here.
