It aims for people in Cambodia and ASEAN to receive equal respect, acceptance, and protection from all sectors within the society. Its mission is to combat discrimination against minorities and diverse people including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI), young girls living with HIV/AIDs, sex workers, drug users, people with disabilities, widowed/single parents, elderly people, and indigenous and other ethnic people by strengthening the capacities of activists pushing for their rights.

It creates a space to practice choice freely and by themselves, the desire to live independently and to learn and develop skills and knowledge to build a peaceful world.

    • Project

      The project My Voice, My Story enables the voices of the LGBTI community in Cambodia to be heard through the use of participatory photography as a tool for social change. This project is a continuation of the previous empowerment grant titled My Voice, My story; Reducing Stigma for the LGBTI community. Using visual narratives and arts, the project pushes marginalised groups to raise awareness, advocate for their rights, ensure they gain better access to public services, and participate in political debates at the commune level.

      Apart from photography, the project incorporates oral storytelling along with traditional arts of songs composed and sung by talented LGBTIQ and their allies. The project also looks into other areas such as raising awareness. The culture of storytelling is innate in Khmer culture. The use of oral, visual, and written stories enables the project to reach a wide spectrum of people across Cambodia to educate and sensitise them about the issues facing the LGBTI community. It also focuses on advocacy and self-expression as members of the LGBTI community gain confidence through self-expression.

      The use of visual narratives enables rightsholders to have an impact on the decision-making process. Factsheets are developed, to be shared with different ministries, describing the reality of LGBTI people and their roles as citizens. Safe spaces are created to promote dialogue and meaningful exchange. These spaces enable the LGBTI community to share their stories and inspire others to do the same without fear of persecution or repression. These spaces include exhibitions, events, and virtual engagements on social media.
