Some 150 people, including representatives of the government and relevant ministries, the LGBTIQ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer), local authorities, ambassadors, parents and guardians held a meeting on Thursday under the theme Dialogue on Legal and Public Policies to Protect LGBTIQ People in Cambodia. Keo Remy, head of the Cambodian Human Rights Committee, said at the meeting that the government had called for an end to discrimination against the LGBTIQ community and supported all forms of freedom of expression. “Prime Minister Hun Sen has sent a message through me to inform the members of the LGBTIQ community at this meeting that the government stands against all discrimination against LGBTIQ people.” “This is the positive message that I will take to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, while we have included it in the Universal Periodic Review [UPR] meeting. We clearly state that the Cambodian government stands against discrimination.”
