Out Adventures loves to connect travellers with people from the LGBT communities in the far-flung lands we visit. It’s a great way to get the most authentic perspective on what life is like. One such connection was with Rath, a gay Cambodian who is still married to his wife while fighting for marriage equality. During our Laos & Cambodia: Buddhist Sights & City Nights gay tour, our guests had a relaxed dinner with Rath and were able to ask questions about the country’s emerging LGBT movement.
Read on to meet this activist who shares his story as well as sheds some light on the nuanced LGBT Cambodian experience.Continue reading “Meet Rath, A Gay Cambodian Who Shares His Story”
For the first time ever, Out Adventures touches down in Madrid, then Spain’s northern province of Galicia for an active gay adventure along the Camino de Santiago, or Way of Saint James.
