“Being LGBT in Asia: A Participatory Review and Analysis of the Legal and Social Environment for LGBT Civil Society”

in THAILAND, 09/04/2013

UNDP APRC and USAID has launched the first joint regional analysis of the social and legal context of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Southeast and East Asia focusing on Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, The Philippines, and China.

“Being LGBT in Asia: A Participatory Review and Analysis of the Legal and Social Environment for LGBT Civil Society” aims to understand not only the contexts faced by LGBT people; it will also address LGBT organizations, the space they operate in, and their capacity to engage on human rights and policy dialogues. This initiative will examine laws and policies, access to justice and health services, cross-border partnerships, and the role of new technologies to support LGBT advocates.

We have a crowdmapping tool for reporting incidents in the region and as a resource for activists and interested persons. https://beinglgbtinasia.crowdmap.com/
