Standing for HIV, Equality and Rights, the HERO Awards is an annual gala event in Bangkok which acknowledges outstanding HIV and LGBT advocates and allies from across Asia and the Pacific. The HERO Awards also raises money for the HIV prevention and human rights work of APCOM, a leading Asia Pacific HIV and LGBT community network based in Bangkok. HERO Awards promises an evening of inspiration and celebration as community members and supporters pay tribute to the extraordinary contributions of individuals and organisations who have improved the lives of LGBT people and people affected by HIV throughout the Asia Pacific region.
The HERO Awards is produced by APCOM and is generously supported by a range of community, corporate and diplomatic partners. This year will be our 4th HERO Awards event. The first HERO Awards took place in 2017 to mark the 10th anniversary commemorations of APCOM.
