CAMBODIA – WHY CAMBODIANS REMAIN CLOSETED


Discrimination towards LGBT people in Cambodia remains rife according to a new survey that suggests that approximately a third of LGBT Cambodians have never disclosed their sexual orientation to anyone, while one fifth said that wish they were straight.

The interviews with 1,600 people showed that 82% of LGBT respondents and 86% of straight respondents believe discrimination remained prevalent and stopped people from coming out.
