Service contents

Introduction of symbolic marks

We prepared symbolic marks to make it easier for users to find out LGBTQ+ friendly shops or services. You will be able to see them when you register the membership. These symbolic marks will help increase the options for LGBTQ+ users, and know the brand images. Please use this as one of the ways help to give a sense of safety and loyalty for LGBTQ+ users inside and outside the country.

From "Something you don’t know" to "Something you knew"

Signboards or names of the shops or faculties are important because they imply what they are or what they serve. However, those signboards or names cannot describe everything. That is why we suggest the introduction of symbolic marks for users. 
Our associations symbolic mark shows visual effectiveness for LGBTQ+ people, and that includes the positive message for them to feel free to visit. It is one of the strengths of us to differentiate from other shops. You can easily understand service providers positive attitudes for LGBTQ+.

Publication to cooperated websites

If you get a basic membership, you can put information on the affiliated websites for LGBTQ+ and inbound tourists. We will provide you with opportunities that your information will be seen by more people. You can advertise your shops or events on the websites that are thought to have many innovators and early adopters. You can also appeal on the websites that are collecting information of what you should do, which shops you should go, which events you can attend while your stay in Japan.

From "Something you knew" to "Something you want to go"

You can post members information to the affiliated information website. The strength of this website is the main target is LGBTQ+, and not only for domestic users but also for foreign users or visitors can access to information. 
Members also can post information with the symbolic mark for free in the affiliated information website. That information will be shown first, which means that they will not be drawn in the sea of information, and all users can easily find them. Users can soon be getting information of JGLTA’s members when they are looking for various facilities and shops, so the difference from other websites is very obvious. You can easily understand “What are they?” at a glance, which contribute to utilization.

From "Something you are interested in" to "Something you are attracted to"

Many corporations are always collecting data and information, but they time they can do that is limited due to the busyness. Our association is collecting those “tiny” information that ordinary company usually cannot collect, and suggest them to members.
