  • Wouldn’t it be great if being different could be more normal?
  • That’s how it should be, but we still have a long way to go.
  • It’s the differences that make the world such an interesting and
    beautiful place.
  • Awesome! Cool!
    It’s as simple as that.
  • Heading toward 2020 and beyond,
    if this magazine changes mindsets,
    I’ll be delighted.
  • After all, these guys really are cool.

ABOUT

GO Journal is a magazine where the excitement of Para-sports, the efforts of Para-athletes (the exertions of Para-athletes/the spirit of Para-athletes) and the culture converge. It aims to burst the bottleneck of prejudice against watching Para-sports—that the disabled are pitiable, and their sports unfamiliar and dull—and trigger actions by every individual to promote an inclusive society post 2020.
