An LGBT hospitality house will be set up during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics as a place to exchange and distribute information about issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

A consortium, made up of 28 organizations and individuals so far, is behind the Pride House Tokyo project, said Gon Matsunaka, founder and president of an LGBT support group called Good Aging Yells, on Thursday. The location has yet to be determined.

Matsunaka, who represents the consortium, said the practice of organizing a space for LGBT athletes and fans in Olympic host cities began with the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. He said the upcoming Tokyo Games will be a good opportunity to collaborate with the sports industry to inform people in Japan and around the world about LGBT issues.
