What do you like most about working on LGBTQI inclusion?
Working on LGBTQI+ Diversity and Inclusion is not only helping people. As a trans woman who works for the community, this work also helps me to add value to myself by learning new things, as a contribution to a better society.
What do you like about working in APCOM?
Experiencing a diversity of ideas and lively new innovations for our community, especially during COVID-19. This is important for working not only at the regional level, but also for Thai LGBTQI and HIV organizations with a strong heart. That is why I like APCOM.
