Organisers of Tokyo Rainbow Pride say an April march will now be a firm fixture in the LGBT calendar

Sunday's Tokyo Rainbow Pride parade attracted 2,500 participants and 2,000 spectators.

After a difficult few years, and no Pride march at all in 2011, LGBT pride in Tokyo is back and the organisers promise that following this weekend's success, Tokyo Rainbow Pride will be a annual event.

The capital of Japan has two LGBT Pride marches this year. Gay Star News speaks to the organisers of this Sunday's Tokyo Rainbow Pride

In Tokyo Pride marches are like buses. You wait for over a year and then two come along at once. Although with Tokyo's excellent transport system, the analogy doesn't translate so well. Anyway, in 2011 there were no LGBT Pride marches and 2012 has two, one on August 11 (Tokyo Pride) and one this Sunday 29 April (Tokyo Rainbow Pride).
