1 View

Cambodia’s LGBT community again held their annual Pride celebrations to coincide with IDAHO.
Under the slogan “different but the same”, the celebrations included a week long LGBT film festival, an international arts festival titled ‘Proud out Lout”, a workshop on family acceptance of LGBT people and coming out as LGBT, training sessions for the media, a candle light vigil for HIV victims, and social programs including pool parties, dance contests, and a most surprising ‘Tuk-Tuk’ (local three-wheeled scooter) race.
Five teams, including one featuring the British Ambassador, braved monsoon rain to race around Phnom Penh’s LGBT-friendly spots and complete various challenges – from getting a team photo in an elevator to getting a hair cut !
