The Bonus to Nepal’s Constitutional Gay Rights Guarantee? Gay Tourists

It might be a stretch to say Nepal, the landlocked country northeast of India and home to Mt. Everest, is adopting a new constitution that guarantees equal rights to sexual minorities just so it can increase tourism to the country. But it wouldn’t be a stretch to say Nepalese authorities aren’t exploiting a ripe opportunity by hosting the same-sex wedding of Indian Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil. The hope? Increase Nepal’s foreign tourism from 50,000 souls to a million homosexuals.
