Supervisory Board member

Tama (he/him/his) is a young LGBTIQ rights advocate from Indonesia. He is known for pioneering the Indonesian trans masculine movement and for his persistence in mainstreaming trans and gender identity issues among LGBTIQ, feminists, and the general human rights movement. He works mainly with grassroots trans and queer communities: handling daily violence cases, facing law enforcement and extremist groups in streets, building support groups, and bringing their voices to regional and international advocacy works.

After surviving severe burnout and depression himself, Tama decided to turn his attention to the well-being of feminist and queer human rights defenders. He is currently the Program Manager at Transmen Indonesia, the organisation he founded. He also serves as an Advisory Board member of Trans Survivor Network. Tama also runs a small company producing prosthetic and toys for gender expression and pleasure to promote positive sex culture amongst the trans and queer community.

Tama is Indonesian and lives in Indonesia.
