Nepal Issues Final Judgement Conferring Full Rights to LGBT Citizens

The Nepalese Supreme Court has ruled that gays & lesbians “are defined as a “natural person” and their physical growth as well as sexual orientation, gender identity, expression are all part of natural growing process. Thus equal rights, identity and expression must be ensured regardless of their sex at birth.” Sunit Pant, Nepal’s only gay MP campaigned for the decision. The court has directed the legislature to enact a marriage equality act and it is expected to do so. [Pinknews]
