Rainbow Community Kampuchea (RoCK) was a voluntary group formed in 2009 by nine LGBT activists to engage with organising and promoting rights for Cambodian LGBTIQ people. In the same year, RoCK worked with partners to launch LGBT Pride Week, an annual event that eventually transformed into a week-long celebration of educational, community building, and entertaining events for the whole LGBTIQ community and their friends. RoCK volunteers have continued to work in LGBT organising across the country while also taking on counseling cases.
Seeing the need to have an organisational structure to better support and promote Cambodian LGBT rights, RoCK registered as a Non-Government Organisation in 2014, becoming the first organisation in Cambodia led by LGBTIQ people and fully dedicated to LGBTIQ rights and advocacy.
As a member of ILGA in Cambodia, RoCK will host the 7th ILGA Asia Regional Conference in collaboration with other national partners.
