Japan’s Largest Housing Site Launches LGBT Service

Suumo is launching a database of LGBT-friendly properties in March

Japan’s national housing information website, Suumo, will offer a service aimed at LGBT, including cohabiting same-sex couples, all over the country starting next month.

The company will develop a database of LGBT-friendly properties coupled with a search function to help LGBT people find suitable accommodation.

A spokesperson from Suumo's parent company, Sumai Company, stressed the importance of providing resources for Japan's LGBT residents.

"There are present conditions where LGBT people are struggling to find property, feeling restricted on living together with their partner in rental houses or refusing to move in themselves,” the representative told PinkNews. “I would like to introduce the owner’s property and support the search for properties.”

Although property agents who cater to LGBT clients aren’t new to Japan, activists and LGBT in the country have welcomed Suumo’s move as an important step for increasing awareness and promoting tolerance.

if all gays stay closer, it will build positive life, i think
don't we should leave negative society and should build or gather positive society?
it is like" lets tiger to fight with other tiger" and should not mix tiger with rabbit that are the conditions.

But how will you make sure that all are not mixing between rabbit and tiger?

A very important first step. Living in community is freeing and comfortable in the coming out process. But there will come a time when acceptance is achieved (through education and example) and we integrate back into the larger population. This has happened here in Canada!

I see that gay organizations very weak because they do not know on how to carry heavy weapons and how to shoot?

I was surprised there are some women become Fashion designers, and Gays do not realize that Fashion designers should be Gays domain only as rule.
Do you Gay in consciousness?

This weakness of Gays because do not realize who are enemies in limited resources and you see that some women also not respect Gays in some countries.

Gays should know that women not always gays friend, and Gays should know on how women to steal

Why? it is big evident and data on women emancipation do not resulting Gay freedom in many countries..do you gays blind?
Gays should also know the way women to seduce Gays to steal.
Gays should see in your countries, how many women population? they are about half of men.
see time running and history for more than 20 years.

If women population is half of men, then they should be very strong to support Gay freedom.
please, Gays should open eyes.

Gays should have ability to coordinate with men because more than 20 years, coordination with women no positive result.

Gays should not blind.
you see how many women having position?
why Gay should make women awake?

i just apply rules that they made.
If nature of heterosexual men or women love to fight, then there will be so many hungry animals..that will be very good show for public.
and we can see, who is the worst? hungry animal or heterosexual men/women?
they both should fight naked without any gun

don't you see history that so many Gays had become victim? do you forget?

why heterosexual men and women having bravery to disturb or to attack gay and with no subject to or abide to Gays? no respect Gays and no shame?

"i just apply rules that they made"

It's time you started living. Use "we" rather than "they". Otherwise, well, you might as well continue not existing.
