"Mickey Mouse supports gay marriage!"

Gay Wedding Is Embraced by Disney in Tokyo:


Koyuki's and Hiroko's wedding last Friday was the first same-sex marriage held in the Tokyo Disney Resort.

The article expressed the hope that their wedding would continue to stir public debates about LGBT rights and support the struggle for LBGT equality in Japan; it furthermore states that Japan has undertaken some steps towards LGBT equality (ban of discrimination at workplace f.ex.), but much more needs to be done to end oppression and discrimination and to "build a society where we can just be ourselves," as Koyuki put it.
