Mar­ried cou­ple Shoshana and Mered­ith took this pic­ture in Yoyogi Park, Shibuya, in March, be­fore head­ing to the coun­try­side. “It was Tokyo Pride, the first Pride we’d been to that wasn’t where ei­ther of us are from; it was lovely to feel an in­ter­na­tional sense of the LGBT com­mu­nity,” says Shoshana, adding that Gold Fin­ger, Tokyo’s les­bian bar, has a fun, cosy vibe and fea­tures karaoke. “It is prob­a­bly one of the friendli­est bars in the area.” If you visit Ja­pan, Shoshana and Mered­ith rec­om­mend split­ting your time be­tween ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the coun­try­side and see­ing the big cities. Favourite lez/bi des­ti­na­tion? Por­tu­gal “We loved Por­tu­gal, the weather was beau­ti­ful and the beaches were gor­geous. We also loved Gran Ca­naria and Is­rael. We are big on beach hol­i­days!” Shosh and Mer are an in­ter­ra­cial, bi-na­tional, mar­ried cou­ple liv­ing in London – and they also hap­pen to be a big Youtube hit. Fol­low @Shoshycadoodle for her il­lus­tra­tions and cute cat spam and fol­low @Merbratton for her hu­mour and ef­fort­less style.
