Being LGBTI in Asia: Country Reports

Being LGBTI in Asia is a regional programme aimed at reducing inequality and marginalization on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). The programme is a collaboration with civil society, and engages national and regional institutions to advance protective laws and policies, and empower civil society. It supports policy and operational research, and strategy development among vulnerable groups and a range of key stakeholders at national and regional level. The programme recognizes that specific LGBTI populations, including lesbians, gay men, transgender men and women and intersex persons face varied and diverse experiences depending on their distinct gender identities and expressions, and social cultural context.

The programme is supported by UNDP, the Embassy of Sweden in Bangkok and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
