Name Coming out in the Kingdom Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People in Cambodia [English]

This report, Coming out in the Kingdom: Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Cambodia, is an output of the LGBT Rights Project implemented by the Cambodian Center for Human Rights. The Report uses the LGBT terminology to discuss the situation of LGBT people in Cambodia, it is important to bear in mind that such terminology is new for Cambodian society, including LGBT individuals themselves, who may not identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bi‐sexual or transgender (as discussed in Section 2 of this Report). The concepts of sexual orientation and gender identitythat have developed in the West may not do justice to the flexible way sexuality is perceived in Cambodia. Accordingly, another challenge to advancing LGBT rights in Cambodia is finding the appropriate language to use when engaging in dialogue with Cambodians about sexual orientation and gender identity.
