LGBT Organizations in Asia and the Pacific Islands:

The Asia and Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) was launched in 2009, when a group of transgender women from various Asia and Pacific countries came together to champion the health, legal and social rights of trans women. In 2011, a trans man drew attention to the need to advocate for trans men and joined the APTN Board. Over the years, APTN has worked to build relationships with trans communities, organizations, governments, healthcare providers and other key stakeholders throughout the region. APTN’s reports and publications have helped guide social policy reform and human rights advances for trans people in many countries including China, Pakistan, and Nepal. Today, APTN is a leader in advocating for the rights of trans and gender diverse people throughout Asia and the Pacific.
