Many adults reached out to eachother, to be able to open up and to create a community for themselves and their kids, who would grow up in a respectful, loving community. One girl in the documentary went to Japan after having lived in Austrialia for most of her life. The change of culture, and being treated as a foreigner all the time made her feel like she was not a part of Japan, even though she is half Japanese.

Religion in Japan is difficult to define because, like most religions, so many factors go into the makeup of the Japanese religiousness. Shinto, Buddhism and Christianity are the three main religions in Japan. Folk religions and New Developed Religions also play an influential role in the makeup of Japanese religiousness.

My study will focus on the misconception that homosexuality is a Western culture and will seek to prove that this phenomenon actually existed in pre-colonial Kenya. This will in turn clear the misunderstanding that the colonialists brought this “vice”. The tolerance of the sexual minority in Africa at one point in time will help my study because it will seek to show that criminalization of these acts is what has brought about intolerance among Africans. 1.7.2 Homophobia, Discrimination and Violence against LGBT

Japan is a isolationist society, this means that the Japanese keep to themselves and do not communicate with other countries or cultures. Only within the past century, after the fall of imperial japan, have the Japanese began to communicate with other countries and open themselves up to the rest of the world. Likewise, their culture is very diverse from that of the rest of the world and is lacking in any kind of Christian movement.
