A mobile app for job listings for freelance LGBTQ+ workers in Southeast Asia can help tackle workplace discrimination and provide more economic opportunities for the growing number of people in the informal sector, activists said.

GetEqual, launched last week, is available on the Line app in Thailand initially, and will be rolled out in Vietnam and Cambodia later in the year, said Ryan Figueiredo, founder and executive director of LGBTQ+ rights group Equal Asia Foundation, which launched the app.

Line is the most widely used chat app in Southeast Asia, and anyone with an account can sign up for GetEqual, which allows users to apply for jobs, and participate in the community chat and other resources.

Employers across sectors can post full-time, part-time and freelance jobs, said Figueiredo. “A lot of LGBTQI people in the region do freelance or gig work fearing discrimination in the workplace.
