So how are queers treated in Japan? sources seem very conflicted. Some say they have a negative reputation as they are not seen contributing to society, where others say they are very open to it, and only ever outlawed it, so as to better fit in with western society.

You should go read this interview ANN did with the film director of this project.

Whew! I'm so relieved that the Kickstarter was successful. When Deb's interview was posted on ANN, there was about $19,800/$45,000 with eight days left in the campaign. Looking forward to the documentary and additional interviews! There were also nice rewards involving manga from Gengoroh Tagame, Rokudenashiko, and other artists. Anime smile + sweatdrop
