Nepal: Sexual Minority Rights

Categories: South Asia, Nepal, LGBTQ+

Nepal Monitor [1] in conversation with Sunil Panta. “Nepal’s sexual minority rights activist says there are some 40,000 recorded LGBTs in the country, and that legal reform will be his main focus for the next five years. International attention on Nepal is not always hardcore political these days. Marginal issues such as rights and identities of minorities have also garnered some such attention in recent times. One example is the recognition bestowed on the Blue Diamond Society, Nepal’s pioneering community-based organization working for sexual minorities.”
