On 4 June, APCOM in partnership with the Australian Embassy in Bangkok hosted a webinar entitled Celebrating Pride Month 2021: LGBTQI inclusion and the effect of Covid-19 to kick start the month long Pride celebrations.
The webinar comprised 2 sessions, the first session was Voices from Thai LGBTQI: Launch of Khormoon Report, which talks about the effects of COVID-19 on the community. The second session was COVID-19 Recovery and LGBTQI Inclusion: A Perspective from the Business Sector, which talks about how the business sector implemented LGBTQI inclusion and how they will further advance the LGBTQI agenda in the business sector.
“We are very honoured to have another opportunity to partner with the Australian Embassy, a key ally in advancing the rights of LGBTQI people in the region, as well as providing a space for our community partners to talk about the challenges that they and their communities face due to Covid-19. APCOM is also grateful for the partnership with the private sector to share with us their initiatives that supports LGBTQI employees on this Pride Month inaugural webinar.”Midnight Poonkasetwattana, APCOM Executive Director
