Submission of Abstracts - 5th ILGA-Asia Regional Conference “ILGA-Asia, The Phoenix Rising” 29 - 31 March 2013, in Bangkok, Thailand

in THAILAND, 10/01/2013

ILGA-Asia - We have been the largest and the most diverse in terms of coverage area. It had its first regional conference in Mumbai, India, 2002; its second regional conference in Cebu, Philippines, 2005. The third regional conference was held on 24-27 January 2008 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Around 160 LGBT activists from Asia [representing 16 countries] and beyond gathered to discuss LGBT issues under the motto “Equality in Diversity Now!”, and to elect a working Board for the first time.

The fourth ILGA-Asia regional conference “LGBT Asia Moving Forward!” was scheduled in Surabaya, Indonesia, 26-28 March 2010. About 150 LGBTQI activists from all over Asia came to participate in this 3-day conference. Unfortunately, it was disbanded in the first day due to a combination of inaccurate media reports and participants safety being threatened by local Islamic fundamentalists.

NOW! You are warmly invited to participate in the 5th ILGA-Asia Regional Conference

Over 100 LGBTQI activists from all over Asia are expected to participate in this 3-days conference. At present, there are around 150 LGBT organizations in Asia that are members of ILGA. Special attention will be given to equal representation of women, transgender and intersex persons. The conference is not exclusive to LGBTI-identified individuals but it also welcomes all people who support the rights of all gender and sexually marginalized groups.
