By Megumi Takai - Fundraiser
Message from a Pride Center Osaka User
Thank you to the support from all of you, Pride Center Osaka, which was opened in April, 2022, celebrates its 1 year anniversary!
Pride Center Osaka is the first permanent LGBTQ center in Osaka. Our center has become a precious place for LGBTQ people, people around them, and people who wish to know more about LGBTQ equality. The purpose of visit to our center is diverse. There are users who come to enjoy chatting with other users and our friendly staff. There are students who come to study about LGBTQ equality. There are also heavy needs for our in-person and online counselling. Many people also simply stop by to our center to hang out and read books. For both users and staff, Pride Center Osaka is a place where we can be ourselves. Our center begins its second year, but our history is still only at the beginning. Please support the stable operation of our center through monthly or single donations.
In this Pride Center Osaka 1 Year Anniversary Campaign, we will introduce messages from the users every week during April and May.
The first week’s message is from our first user, Saion-san!
"Since I visited Pride Center Osaka as the first user, the center has become an important place where I feel that I belong to.
I hope that the center continues to be such place for everyone…!"
Thank you very much for your message, Saion-san!
During 11 months since April, 2022 to February, 2023, the total of 1,250 people from children up to people in their 70s have visited our center.
More than 40% of people come back to use our center again. More than 30% of users have come to our center for more than four times. It is widely recognized among our users that they can come back here freely!
Pride Center Osaka cannot continue its operation without your support. Please support us through donations. Your donations will be used to costs that are essential to continue opening Pride Center Osaka such as rent, utilities and personnel cost for our staff. Please donate us and join our effort to support the LGBTQ community in Japan.
