LGBTQ – Memory from my part-time job in Japan
Almost 19 years ago.
I worked at a Japanese pub.
I was the one of the youngest and all other part-time job members were kind to me. We became friends quickly.
One of guys, let’s call him Natsu 1), gave me working instructions & tasks. He was little older than me, like 22 years old?
His way of speaking and behaviour were different than other guys.
Similar to girls. His best friend at work was a girl.
There was one changing room, so girls mainly used it together.
I and other girls with Natsu always changed clothes together.
One day, we were only two, I & Natsu in the changing room. Natsu said, Namiko, don’t turn around & don’t look at me😃
I laughed at and replied that ok, I’m not so perverse😁
From this day our relationship changed. How can I call it, like ….. sisters.
He started teach me…
how to speak, walk, smile, etc. like a lady. The world of My Fair Lady.
He talked me (some friends at work) about his boyfriend.
I didn’t ask anything about LGBTQ theme. Natsu was my friend and that’s all.
