MStyle Khmer is a social support network for Cambodia’s young men who love men, helping them to lead safe, happy, successful and responsible lifestyles.
Outreach sessions are held weekly at the MStyle clubs, located around Cambodia.
The clubs are safe places where MSM can meet with friends, watch TV, join in karaoke, and at the same time learn about healthy sexual practices and choices.

The Cambodia Gay Pride week of 2012 – from Friday, May 11th till Sunday, May 20th – is full of activities: film screenings, parties, Buddhist blessings, discussions and a lot of other events. One of the funniest events is probably the first Cambodia Pride Amazing Tuk-Tuk Race, taking place on Monday afternoon on May 14th. Be sure to bring your camera as participating teams will have to pick a Pride colour and pimp up their tuk-tuk in that colour (balloons, fabric, all team members wearing that colour, etc.). Fun, fun, fun!
There are not only events and activities in Phnom Penh, but also in Siem Reap and Battambang.
