The Sapporo District Court in Japan has いなべ
The Sapporo District Court in Japan has ruled that the ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional
This decision is a big symbolic victory in a country where the constitution still defines marriage as based on "mutual consent of both sexes."
The law will come into force after a while, but LGBT activists welcomed the decision and said it could change their lives.
“I'm really happy. Until the decision was announced, we weren't completely sure, and I'm just overjoyed, ”said 44-year-old Gon Matsunaka, director of the Marriage for All Japan activist group and spokesman for Pride House Tokyo.
While Japanese laws are relatively liberal by Asian standards, social relations render the LGBT community largely invisible.
