This is a casual discussion and safe space for LGBTQIA+ JETs and their partners to meet one another, and to talk about their hopes and concerns about life in Japan. We welcome anyone who wants/needs to ask questions, as well as alumni willing to share their experiences.
This event will be immediately followed by our monthly PNW JETAA Happy Hour, which is celebrating Pride Month!
In order to keep this event safe and inclusive, the following will not be tolerated: homophobia, bi/panphobia, transphobia, racism, religism, ableism, and classism/poor-shaming. This also includes jokes/events that promote rape culture.
Optimism Brewing is centrally located on Broadway in Capitol Hill. This venue only serves beer, but they allow food and non-alcoholic beverages from outside. They have gender neutral bathrooms.
