Chief Executive of AIDS Concern Andrew Chidgey attended the Pride and Prejudice Conference in Hong Kong on 3 March. Andrew is also a member of the Regional Advisory Group of APCOM, a coalition in Asia Pacific that advocate on the issue of HIV. Andrew shares in an article on APCOM key highlights of the events that show businesses are starting to show interest in diversity and reflects upon how to make use of this to have greater impact on LGBT rights--

"It is through the channel of diversity that we can have more impacts on LGBT rights. I would suggest that the secret to having impact is to look at not only making our case only on LGBT rights but also by looking for alliances with people working on rights in general – women’s rights, children’s rights, ethnic minority rights and others.
