Hundreds of LGBT march in Kathmandu

LGBT and supporters paraded in Nepal’s capital Friday to demand equal rights under the country’s new constitution.

Nepal’s pride parade took place on Friday. It has been held for the past few years on Gaijatra, a Hindu festival to remember the dead, in which people cross dress.

Participants told the Associated Press that they were marching as they still do not have equal rights despite a constitutional ban on discrimination based on sexuality.

Among the banners carried by LGBT and allies, one said “We should not be deprived of our rights. We demand implementation of the rights guaranteed by the new constitution.”

U.S. Ambassador to Nepal Alaina B. Teplitz, joined the parade.

I think those marching should look at what the law actually is now.

And rights come with education, respect and tolerance. Hrw can stir all they like with no repercussion on them it would seem.

Good for them they are Human Beings right!
Also laws can be changed as they are all man made!
