Digital Safety and Security for Young LGBTI Persons & YKPs

Being LGBTI in Asia and the Pacific is a regional programme aimed at addressing inequality, violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status, and promotes universal access to health and social services. It is a collaboration between governments, civil society, regional institutions and other stakeholders to advance the social inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. The programme recognizes that LGBTI people are highly marginalized and face varied forms of stigma and discrimination based on their distinct sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions. The programme is supported by UNDP, the Embassy of Sweden in Bangkok, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Ministry for European Affairs and Equality (Malta), the Government of Canada and Faith in Love Foundation (Hong Kong, SAR).

This online course is proposed to better equip Young LGBTI persons and YKPs with the skills they need to protect themselves and their peers when accessing information online and developing their own online spaces. The objectives of this online course are:

  • To enhance the capacity of Young LGBTI persons and YKPs to develop safe spaces online.
  • To equip Young LGBTI persons and YKPs with digital literacy skills to distinguish between real information and disinformation
  • To equip Young LGBTI persons and YKPs with skills to protect their own data and remain safe online.
