Description: "‘Being LGBT in Asia’ has a number of objectives. It encourages networking between LGBT people across the region, building a knowledge baseline and developing an understanding of the capacity of LGBT organizations to engage in policy dialogue and community mobilization. Through this work, ‘Being LGBT in Asia’ promotes understanding of the inherent human rights of LGBT people and the stigma and discrimination they face throughout the region. It also outlines steps toward LGBT-inclusive development work for UNDP and the UN system, USAID and the US Government, and other development partners, through research like this report and other social and multimedia products. Finally, this initiative highlights the views expressed by LGBT participants at national community dialogues and links stakeholders who work to enhance LGBT human rights across Asia."
