Dear Friends and Colleagues, My Name is Siwaporn (Apple) and I am the owner of Apple Model Management (www.applemodels.com) located in Bangkok Thailand. My company has been a human rights activist and big supporter of LGBTQ in Thailand and around the world for the past two decades and in 2014 made history when we launched the first ever TRANSGENDER model division in the world and were featured in over 200 publications around the world including major ones such as the BBC, Huffington Post, The Advocate, Elle Magazine, Vogue Magazine, Vice (documentary) and others. With Covid-19 and the closure of the borders in Thailand we were hit quite hard and started a fund-raising campaign to keep the lights on and save the agency from closing down. We are in desperate need of your help to share our campaign on your social media channels and help us spread the news. Please take a look at the campaign: https://fundrazr.com/Apple-Models Any help circulating it from your side will be highly appreciated. Apple Model Management applemodels.com
