A beautiful image of 2 happy older men

Cambodia has a negative reputation for some when it comes to sexuality. We cannot ignore this, because the figures do not lie and terrible things happen that are reprehensible.

There is also another side of Cambodia that mostly not highlighted. I am referring in particular to Phnom Penh. Where specific behavior is condemned in some countries, it is the most normal thing in the world in Phnom Penh.

In Cambodia, touching each other - including men - thus walking hand in hand is much more accepted than in many other parts of the world. That is why these two men can walk like this unashamedly and cheerfully.


This is what you may encounter during a photo tour in Phnom Penh. People live on little money, but get happiness from many things. When I became a resident of Phnom Penh years ago, this gave me many wise lessons in life. Lessons about joy and acceptance that have stayed with me to this day and help me every day. We may think and be different, but let's accept each other. So that everyone can make themselves and others feel happy. Sometimes through a simple walk where we walk hand in hand.

This is something I gladly wanted to share with you.
