Excellent news. Another positive and visible step forward.
He’s cute too.
A fabulous country with fabulous people. Good news all round
Portrays the UK as inclusive and supportive. It sounds as though he is a very professional and capable diplomat – and comfortable and confident in his sexuality – a very good thing!
And yes, Riondo he is kinda cute
Bullsh*t well send the gays abroad for good pr but we’d never have one as PM
We’ve already had a closeted one in the 1970′s in Edward Heath. It’s just then the media wasn’t so obsessed with who was Gay and who wasn’t.
@ James! Diplomats don’t have to be elected.
Cute, clever, brave and in relationship. Perfect as far as politician goes.
How so? Cambodia is not Uganda you know.
Congratulations to him though.
I think the words “cat” and “pigeons” spring to mind. Aren’t the Cambodians muslim?
In the report I have looked at about Cambodia 92% of the population profess to be Buddhist
The Cambodians Muslim? Good God man, try a little light Googling before making such silly remarks!
I did jump when I read Cambodia and Muslim in the same sentence – whilst there might be the odd one or two, its certainly not a country renowned for the Islamic faith. I did double take and had to google to verify that the information I had stored in my memory was accurate …
Cambodia beautiful country – shameful past – but now so tolerant of equality of all types.
Stu, you will find that Islam in Southern and South-Eastern Asia principally took hold (the Mughal Empire in India excepted) around ports and in archipelagoes – Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia – from spreading through Arab traders’ settlements.
I believe the great ancient civilisations of Cambodia were closer to what we would label ‘Hindu’, and their decline arguably was the result of conversion to non-violent Buddhism.
Genuinely thanks for the history lesson
Intrigued by why you suspect conversion to Buddhism led to decline
This guy is SOOOO Cute!!!
He’s the right man to apply a bit of pressure to further gay rights. The King of Cambodia reportedly supports same sex marriage and it is neither legal nor illegal there. In fact there is a precedent, as one legal same sex marriage has taken place there.
If Nepal can do it then why not Cambodia?
