What is happening in 5 countries from our partners of the project “Supporting LGBTQI Rights in Asia”?

By June 3, 2024 Advocacy

It is inspiring to witness the LGBTQI movement in Asia and the Pacific demonstrating their fearless visibility during Pride Month. 

Global Affairs Canada is supporting APCOM to lead the project “Supporting LGBTQI Rights in Asia: Connecting Voices for LGBTQI Socio Economic Inclusion and Human Rights in Asia” aiming to improve local LGBTQI organizations’ ability to represent and advocate for LGBTQI persons’ welfare towards shaping gender-sensitive policies and programs in five countries in Southeast Asia; Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, and Thailand.

The project’s ultimate outcome is to advance gender equality and human rights by LGBTQI persons in the five countries, including Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines and Thailand. The project will build skills and knowledge to address identified gaps in areas such as project management, lobbying and advocacy, networking, resource mobilization, communications, finance, human rights, and gender equality.
