‘Being LGBT in Asia’ is a ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind joint analysis undertaken by UNDP and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) together with grassroots lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations and community leaders to understand the challenges faced by LGBT people in Asia. Working on eight countries – Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Mongolia, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam – the effort examines LGBT lived experiences from human rights and development perspectives. The regional consultation will be under the ‘Being LGBT in Asia’  initiative and bring together more than 200 LGBT people, experts, government and other related stakeholders across the Asia  and the Pacific.
