Read Time:22 Second

A district court in Japan has in a landmark decision ruled that the country’s failure to recognise same-sex marriage is “unconstitutional”.

Japan’s constitution defines marriage as one between “both sexes”.

But a Sapporo court ruled that this denied the couples constitutionally-guaranteed equality, in what is seen as a symbolic victory for LGBTQ activists.

Japan is the only country in the G7 group of developed nations that does not allow same-sex marriage.
