MapBeks is an online LGBT mapping community, based in the Philippines, that advocates for diversity inclusion and representation focused specifically for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, etc. (LGBTQI+) on OpenStreetMap.
- Mapping in response to the impact of Super Typhoon Rolly - Response has concluded, projects were completed via the HOT Tasking Manager Projects.
- Mapping of LGBTQ friendly spaces in the Philippines - In an attempt to assert LGBT rights and representation, MapBeks maps out nominated LGBT safe spaces on QueerMap by qiekub. MapBeks validates the submitted places by calling space owners, and securing a memorandum of agreement to protect all individuals in any form of discrimination. The group then uploads it to OSM afterwards.
- HIV facilities mapping in the Philippines
