Fukuoka Rainbow Educational Network

Fukuoka Rainbow Educational Network

FRENS is based in Fukuoka, where it runs regular local activities to support LGBT youth, their families and acquaintances.

It also provides telephone consultation. Callers can talk about their feelings, including problems like, “It’s hard to talk to friends and family about my crush,” “I don’t like wearing school uniforms,” and “I want to tell someone my true feelings.” FRENS promises to keep the discussions secret, and it accepts anonymous calls so that callers do not have to share their name or address.

People who are worried about call charges can begin by discussing that with a FRENS representative. The call service focuses on people under the age of 24 and runs from​ 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Sunday
