I want to tell people thinking they are unhappy because they are not ordinary that "everyone has his/her own happiness."

Kazuyuki Minami



Minami and Masafumi Yoshida are lawyers and "the same-sex couple."  They had a wedding eight years ago. Although some people taunted them as "unfilial sons," Minami is sorry that they can realize their own happiness only by denying the others' happiness. Having someone who cares about you is one of the cornerstones of life. Therefore, Yoshida is also willing to accompany juveniles involved in criminal cases. From coauthored book, "Our colorful everyday."
