In June 2018, over 120 people from the Asia and the Pacific Region came to Bangkok to participate in the Pride in the Humanitarian System Conference. The conference included humanitarian actors, community consultations, and action planning on how to promote LGBTIQ rights in resilience-building, response, and recovery interventions in humanitarian settings.
The Pride In The Humanitarian System conference was produced by a range of Asia Pacific HIV and LGBTIQ community networks as well as various international agencies, and the organising coalition this week released the final call to action which was developed by delegates during the conference. The delegates crafted call to action for the Asia Pacific humanitarian sector to be more inclusive of the needs of #lgbtiq people during crises such as natural disasters and conflicts.
