This study discussed the concept of "inter-minority empathy," which refers to the attitudes acknowledging sexual and gender diversity. Previous research about positive and affirmative attitudes toward sexual minorities were reviewed, revealing three kinds of motivations, 1) personal and meaningful relationships with LGBT people, 2) principles and values such as justice, civil rights and religious/moral beliefs, and 3) negative emotions such as guilt. Our research in Japan (Kasai & Odo, 2018) revealed 4 categories of promoting attitudes acknowledging sexual and gender diversity ; "Visualization and knowledge of LGBT+," "Personal and intimate relationship with LGBT+ people," "Inter-minority empathy," and "Joining LGBT+ activities." "Inter-minority empathy" is a new concept for promoting these attitudes and the definition of this is "the empathy toward other minority based on their own experience as a minority." Inter-minority empathy can be a bridge among many different minority issues and also a solution for prejudice and discrimination against different minorities.
