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 Shuniyya

The Story of Shuniyya

In a country where faith and sexuality often clash, Shuniyya Ruhama Habiiballah has been pushing boundaries for the acceptance and inclusion of the Indonesian transgender community. Shuniyya is a successful transwoman businesswoman who teaches the Quran to children, thus carving a space for her gender identity and her own religiosity.

The Story of Shuniyya is episode 11 of the Stories of Being Me video series supported by Being LGBT in Asia.
