HIV and LGBT community heroes from across Asia and the Pacific are set to be honoured at a special event in Bangkok today.

Standing for HIV, Equality and Rights, the HERO Awards is an annual gala event in Bangkok which acknowledges outstanding service to the HIV response in Asia and the Pacific, and to the region’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities.

 

The first ever HERO Awards took place in Bangkok last year.
Taking place tonight (Friday 30 November) in the historic Ambassador’s residence at the British Embassy in Bangkok, the HERO Awards is a special fundraising event for the Bangkok-based APCOM Foundation, a leading NGO which works to fight HIV and advance LGBT health and rights across the Asia Pacific region. The Awards are also being supported by a range of corporate sponsors, community organisations and diplomatic missions.
Community members and supporters throughout Asia and the Pacific were invited to nominate individuals and organisations across eight (8) categories who have made significant contributions to the health and rights of LGBT people and people affected by HIV. The categories are: Social Justice; Health & Wellbeing; Community Ally; Community Organisation; Young Achiever; Transgender Hero; HIV Hero; and Community Hero.
One of the awards tonight will go to Taiga Ishikawa, one of Japan’s first openly Gay Politicians for nearly 20 years of promoting LGBTI rights in Asia.
