Who are we?

BE is owned and operated for the community by the B-Change Group, a social enterprise on a mission to promote social change through technology.

Having focused on Southeast Asia’s LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex) community for the past 6 years and armed with a social media following 80,000 strong, the remit of our app initiative is being expanded beyond the LGBTI community to include people with disabilities, ethnic and racial minorities and other groups.

We are achieving  this by forming partnerships with other like-minded community organisations, along with support from Ashoka Philippines, Levi Strauss Foundation, United Nations Development Programme, USAID,  app engineering partners Javasparks, and branding consultancy Brand Union.

The Story of Apiwat

The Story of Apiwat

Apiwat has been active in the fight against HIV in Bangkok for many years. He is open about being gay and HIV-positive and has witnessed the misery that stigma has created, both within the gay community and among those outside. Despite the availability of life-saving treatment, Apiwat is concerned that will not see the end of HIV unless we do more to combat stigma.

The Story of Apiwat (Bangkok) is episode 10 of the Stories of Being Me video series supported by Being LGBT in Asia and PSI.
