BE Health in Bangkok supports a LGBT youth music band of 15 musicians and 10 dancers. They design and sew their costumes, compose their music, train hard and rehearse continuously. Often poor, sometimes homeless or stigmatised by their family, these youth restore a sense of self and purpose by promoting health and raising funds through their performances. Being made aware of BE Health’s activities in Bangkok, the Nomad’s Annual Christmas Charity 2017 invited BE Health Bangkok’s team and four dancers of the youth music band at its annual event, which was broadcasted on TNN 24 television channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fmEb1Ter4s) on 24 December 2017.
Together with local company sponsors, BE Health will produce their shows in 2018 and facilitate HIV and TB screening during the entertainment, in collaboration with the public health sector.
