Nepal’s queer political tide continues to rise. Last month we reported that a record five gay citizens have enrolled in the nation’s political battle. Well, that number’s now risen to eleven – and the candidates aren’t just gay. Consider Rajjab Ali, a eunuch who makes his living dancing at weddings. Tired of being disenfranchised, the 33-year old decided to get involved – and historic: he’s the first eunuch to run for political office in Nepal. Astounding, inspiring and all together intriguing.
