Text:The organisers of the Outgames Human Rights Conference have received US$35,000 in late funding. The money has come from a range of groups and has been provided for very specific purposes, including bringing people from particular groups in Asia to the conference. Over 258 people have registered for the conference so far, ahead of the closing date on 9 March. Keynote speaker Professor Vitit Muntarbhorn has had to withdraw due to United Nations commitments, however two other international speakers will take part. They are Boris Dittrich, Advocacy Director (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Program) Human Rights Watch, New York; and John Fisher, a New Zealander and human rights campaigner currently based in Geneva.
