TENGA & PRIDE
TENGA Celebrates PRIDE Worldwide
TENGA believes deeply in everyone’s right to live freely as who they are, without expectations or shame.
We hope to build a world that is open, free, and full of joy, where individuality is celebrated for making each of us who we are.
As part of this, TENGA is always endeavoring to support the LGBTQ+ community by supporting PRIDE events worldwide, launching products where profits are allocated to donations and doing what we can in-house to learn more.
PRIDE Edition Items
For several years, TENGA has celebrated Pride Month with the release of a limited-edition rainbow item, with proceeds going to donations and support of LGBTQ+ non-profits and awareness activities.
However, we want to bring all the colors of Pride to life all year-round. Starting from 2020, we launched the Pride Edition of the TENGA EGG - SHINY, as a regular addition to the TENGA EGG lineup; because Pride shouldn’t have to end when the festivities do.
In 2020, the proceeds of this item were donated to It Gets Better, a non-profit organization supporting LGBTQ+ Youth.
The TENGA EGG Pride Edition Shiny is available below:
In-house LGBTQ+ Sensitivity Training
While we pride ourselves in our actions throughout the years to promote making sexuality more open and something everyone can enjoy, we also endeavor to keep updating our knowledge and understanding.
With the help of Japan NPO Nijiiro Diversity, we have held in-house training seminars regarding not just workplace sensitivity towards sexual minorities, but the current situation around employment in the LGBTQ+ community.
We will continue these efforts to train all of our staff to better understand the challenges the LGBTQ+ community can face.
Rainbow Parenting Handbook (Japan Only)
With the profits raised from the “TENGA RAINBOW PRIDE CUP 2018” we worked together with NPO Nijiiro Diversity, and the Nijiiro Family including PR Group PRAP Japan, to create a handbook for new and expecting parents.
This handbook served to tell the stories of LGBTQ+ individuals, on what it was like growing up in Japan with their sexuality - what hurt, what helped, what they wish it would have been like - as a guide for these new parents in raising a child without enforcing any sexual identity on them at an early age.
