Hey, my name is Beau (Pronounced boh)
I'm currently based in Jakarta, Indonesia. I've been in Jakarta for almost a year now, and have been based in Indonesia for the past 2 years. I work for human rights and advocacy NGO called AMAN (Aliansi Masyarakat Adat Nusantara).
I'm passionate about community development and engagement, especially with the global Queer/LGBTI/Sexually and Gender diverse communities.
On the side I'm passionate about writing, exploring through my stomach and general sun-soaked adventures.
If you want to see some of my writing - you're welcome to check out my blog.
Queer Communities, development, HIV prevention, live music, spicy food, tattoos, riding bikes, critcal theory, waterfalls.
