The Cambodian Human Rights Committee president spoke during a pro-LGBT event in Phnom Penh on Saturday and called on the public to end discrimination and prevent violence against the community. The event, organised by Rainbow Community Kampuchea, was held during International Human Rights Day. CHRC president Keo Remy said the government has made efforts in recent years to curb violence and discrimination against the LGBT community in the Kingdom, but discrimination among some members of the public is still apparent. “Senior government leaders have instructed and called on everyone to not discriminate against LGBT people in Cambodia,” Mr Remy said. “Families, communities and society should not discriminate against LGBT people.” He said citizens, especially parents, should avoid using violence and refrain from discriminating against LGBT people.
