------------------------

Eight years after the release of his last film, the internationally received masterpiece “Tenshi no Rakuen” (Looking for an Angel), Japanese director Akihiro Suzuki returns with a brand new omnibus, "Luna no Kodomo" (Lunar Child) which he independently wrote, directed, and edited. Boasting a cast of prominent actors from Japanese underground theater, the film is broken into three separate dramatic narratives. "Her Story" explores the pain felt by a terminally ill man and a young runaway he finds in a stairwell, "Mizuki's Story" introduces a lesbian who refuses to allow herself to love out of fear of being hurt, and "Hikari's Story" touches on the internal struggles of a breadwinning wife and mother. "Lunar child" will be showing at Uplink Theater for two weeks starting Saturday, November 7th in evening and late shows. (Call the theater to see about English subtitles.) Fans of Akihiro Suzuki should definitely check it out!

------------------------

The NHK program "Haato O Tsunago (Heart-to-Heart)" has taken up a variety of issues, including a recent series on LGBTs, over the course of its three year run. A special two-part program on Gender Identity Disorder* will be broadcast November 2nd and 3rd on Fuji TV from 8:00pm to 8:29pm.

Appearing in the program will be Fumino Sugiyama, a regular guest on “Haato O Tsunago” since it began addressing gender identity and LGBT issues. After filming the 5th installment of Haato O Tsunago’s series on Gender Identity Disorder* while studying abroad in England in 2005, the very popular Sugiyama traveled the world in a journey that included a stop in Thailand where he received chest reconstruction surgery before returning to Japan. This past summer he embarked on a new trip, this time meeting with other trans and trans-identified people across Japan.

In this special two-part program, Sugiyama talks about changes in his life post-surgery and experiences he had meeting other trans people throughout Japan. In part two, broadcast on November 3rd, “Haato O Tsunago” will also introduce the story of a trans-identified youth, currently in middle school, that Sugiyama met.

At the end of the program there will also be an interview with singer Yo Hitoto, whose latest music video release “Unto Shiawase (Tons of Happiness)” features LGBT guests from “Haato O Tsunago”. This is a special program you won’t want to miss!

★We will soon be posting video interviews with “Haato O Tsunago” guests Fumino Sugiyama, Aya Kamikawa, and more! Don’t forget to check back!

*Note: "Gender Identity Disorder" is commonly used within Japan’s mainstream culture to refer to persons who do not identify with their born gender; it is more broadly recognized than the term “transgender” and thus often used to refer to trans people and issues.

------------------------

The student group Kaede no Niji was formed earlier this year at the Kanagawa campus of Toyo Eiwa Women's University with the aim of exploring diversity in sexuality and gender. On Saturday, October 31st Kaede no Niji will be inviting four very special guests for its first symposium.

The guests are: Setagaya assembly member (and Tokyo Pride Festival attendee) Aya Kamikawa, the first openly transgender candidate to seek elected office in Japan; Masae Torai, transgender activist and model for Aya Ueto’s popular character (Nao Tsurumoto, a young student struggling with Gender Identity Disorder) in the Japanese drama “3-Nen B-gumi Kinpachi Sensei”; as well as Chizuka Oe and Yoko Ogawa from the LOUD Community Space for Lesbian and Bisexual Women.

Guests will discuss their own experiences living in a society where gender is highly polarized and living true to oneself becomes a challenge. Discussion will focus on “School, Love, and Society”.

Everyone is welcome to attend this, Kaede no Niji’s first, event!

Everyone Under the Rainbow: Lesbian and trans people speak
Date: Saturday, October 31 1:00-2:30pm
※A one-hour exchange is also scheduled to be held after the event

------------------------

Japan's own queer girls’ flick, “Topless” is now available on DVD! The film, based on a script written by out lesbian writer Purin Watanabe, delivers a strikingly real and roundly humorous gay girls’ perspective on life for Japanese lesbians as it warmly depicts the human drama of love.

*English subtitles for the film were supervised by Tokyo Wrestling.

STORY
The ever-lively and upbeat Natsuko tries to mend a broken heart after her break-up with Tomomi. But when Tomomi announces her plans to marry - a man - Natsuko becomes inconsolable. While all this is taking place, Natsuko's straight male roommate is grappling with his own feelings for her, and a young high school girl comes to Tokyo searching for the mother that long ago left her for a female lover. Each character - queer, straight, male, female, young, old, and in-between - struggles to make peace with him/herself as all their lives overlap. This story captures the power of young love, and the web of the city.
