Supported by our Community Partner – ILGA Asia
This award recognizes the work of an LGBTQI person who has improved the lives of LGBTI people in any capacity in specific countries in Asia and the Pacific or across the region more broadly.
Hiker Chiu, a senior Intersex activist from Taiwan, is the Co-chair of Intersex Asia – the first regional network of intersex organizations in Asia– and currently serves as a member of the advisory board of the Intersex Human Rights Fund at Astraea Foundation for Lesbian Justice.
We are determined to build intersex communities in each Asian country and support intersex people to speak for themselves to defend their human rights. We believe one day, we will have a community that includes intersex people from every Asian country. For me, the community always goes first. Without community, no community Hero. This honor definitely goes for intersex community. I believe this honor will help me raise more intersex awareness in Asia and incubate more community heroes in the future. Thanks for this great opportunity and your listening!
