Proud and united: Cambodian LGBTQ football team promotes acceptance at Gay Games Hong Kong (video)

Hong Kong is hosting the first Gay Games in Asia from November 3-11, 2023. Athletes from more than 40 countries, ranging in age from 18 to 87, are competing for medals in 18 sports. Among them is an LGBTQ-inclusive football team from Central Cambodia that is attending the Games on a scholarship. Relations between partners of the same sex are legal in Cambodia, but many LGBTQ Cambodians say they still face societal discrimination. Coach Pa Vann and his players all care deeply about creating visibility for their community through sport.
