APCOM is a not-for-profit regional organisation based in Bangkok, Thailand, improving the health and rights of gay men, other men who have sex with men and SOGIESC people across Asia and the Pacific. APCOM also works to improve the relevant human and legal rights of LGBTIQ community by addressing issues on stigma and discrimination, as well as advocating Diversity and Inclusion for the decriminalisation and inclusion of the marginalised community based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and expressions, and sexual characteristics. While working to create a more enabling environment for our communities, we strengthen the community networks and build their capacities for a more effective response at a country level.
