This is a pre-recorded performance of Transgender Khmer Traditional Dancing featuring five lesbians and transgender people.

The "Blessing Dance" is performed as an act of blessing the audiences for good luck. It is traditionally used for event openings, especially cultural festival events.

After dancing, the leader of the dancers that represents the LGBTIQ community will share a five-minute explanation about how art or performance can bring visibility to LGBTQI people in ASEAN.
