Asia Anti-Violence Project

IGLHRC is in the final stages of an unprecedented 3-year study of violence endured by lesbian, bisexual women and transgender people in Asia. With just 2 people staffing our Asia Program, we partnered with local activists to collect interviews with 392 people in 9 languages. The findings – spanning 5 countries including Japan, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia – will break your heart.

The video about this project also reveals the hope and resilience that LGBT people under siege demonstrate all over the world.
