APCOM Thailand


Taiwan has passed a same-sex marriage bill in May, making it the first place in Asia to bring in gay marriage, and Bhutan’s National Assembly has begun the process of decriminalising gay sex in early June. Those are two wonderful reasons to celebrate this Pride Month. This time we want to profile two activists working on equality in Taiwan and Bhutan to share further about those changes.

APCOM Updates


As part of our year of consolidation, we undertook a difficult restructure to better align our organisation with our Strategic Framework, as well as the realities of funding that has become more limited and project-based. We are undertaking a comprehensive review and we implemented a range of new measures to ensure the most efficient and effective delivery of our programmes and services that is aligned with the needs of our communities on the ground. The restructure also coincided with the conclusion of several of our multi-year projects and this involved the departure of various team members whose positions were being funded via these projects.

Help APCOM's Sustainability

As announced at the HERO Awards, we want to thank you, our friends and partner for supporting and helping raise funds for APCOM’s work. However, unfortunately, APCOM is currently facing a rather uncertain financial future. Many international funding organizations and governments have decreased their financial support for HIV programs in the Asia Pacific, and this difficult environment for funding will persist for the foreseeable future
Despite our best efforts for resource mobilisation, the funding we require for much of our HIV prevention and LGBTI rights work has not come through. This means our vital impact on the HIV and human rights response in this region is seriously diminished.
If you would like to support the work of APCOM in a significant way, and if you know sources of funding and support for APCOM please reach out to me at [email protected]
Thank you,
Midnight and all at APCOM
