Nepal to Protect Gays in Constitution

Nepal to Protect Gays in Constitution

Nepal's newest constitution will be the first in Asia to guarantee equal rights to sexual minorities, according to the Hindustan Times.  

Nepal is scheduled to draft its new constitution by May. It will include antidiscrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex citizens.

“Rights for LGBTIs have been well drafted in the new constitution. They will ensure nondiscrimination and separate citizenship IDs for third-gendered people,” Sunil Babu Pant, Nepal’s first openly gay lawmaker, said in the article.
