Nepals First Gay MP Sunil Babu Pant on an elephant
 Now Im sure everyones used to seeing gay/transexual (LGBT) people during the Gai Jatra festival or at Thamel during the evening 😉 but this year things were more Grande! Blue Diamond Society hosted the first ever Gay Pride march in Kathmandu on August 25th 2010 which coincided with Gai Jatra. Hundreds of homosexuals, dressed in vibrant colours, danced through city streets carrying banners appealing for an end to discrimination. “This pride parade indicates that this society is starting to change and to see that all members of the community deserve equal rights,” said Dominic Hannigan, an openly gay Ireland MP who took part in the parade.
 Look at those ‘chada’ akha. LOL

What do you think about GAY PRIDE in GAI JATRA? Gay Pride should be done as an individual event in its own domain and not mixed up with Gai Jatra. Thoughts?

  1. Gay rights… very glad our Nepalese society have become so so so much more civilized now ^_^ treating humans the way they should… I’v always been wondering about the gay society thats cuz i’ve seen them being treated like animals n wondered y so..?? after all they are part of our society. Homosexuality is not a choice. Society forces you to think it’s a choice. Its nature who decides,, who are we to decide on these things??? so to all dont hide your true self The choice is whether one expresses one’s nature truthfully or spends the rest of one’s life lying about it.”

    Hats off to FIRST GAY PRIDE IN NEPAL…!!!

    P.S m not gay i jus think people should be more just…

  2. I do not think sexuality should be a factor which should decide your value as a person. So, it is a positive step that the gay society has decided to come out of the closet and finally confirm and claim their rights for freedom of expression and equality. Still, GAI JATRA??

    This is a day that holds historic meaning. And it should be remembered for what it represents. Moreover, Gai Jatra is mainly for comical showcase, see here for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaijatra.

    So come to think of it, how is a gay parade and the principle of the festival dedicated to death and respecting the souls of departed relevant? I personally think they can declare an independent date as their day, celebrate their sexuality and educate people about it. Please leave what ever little unique festivities for what they are.

  3. WOW!!

    Gay pride FTW!
    Nice one Lex~
    n quite lyk the fact tht Haamro NEpali community is bein more open n civilized!!

    ii lyks 🙂

  4. the banner says it all….sexuality is definitely NOT a choice…you are born gay and it’s not anyone’s fault. People should accept them for who they are and well done to them for being strong and against the “low profile” society…

  8. its the 21st century in the parts of the “WEST” not in 99.9% of the east.

    nepal is so far back, and you people are trying to force this whole gay pride movement to the poor uneducated people of nepal????

    you people need a reality check. this is bloody wrong. FROM THE LAND OF THE BRAVE GURKHAS,,,,NOW IF IT GOES LIKE THIS PEOPLE WILL CALL NEPAL THE LAND OF GAYS…..makes me sick

  9. it is really Sad and same time bad that we have such people , who still lives on in the dark side of life. Don’t know that Being gay is not a choice! yes it is 21 century and doesn#t matter where we are, we need to bring Nepal and the whole Nepali in bright side of the life and what nepali are right now doing is slowly but surelly a really important step to bring Nepal and Nepali Open and tolareant country.

    Namaste

    Ps: Gorkha and Gay both belongs to Nepal.

  10. FROM THIS PRO GAY ARTICLE, IT SEEMS NEPAL HAS GONE IN THE WRONG DIRECTION OF EVOLUTION IN FORWARD THINKING.

    THIS IS A DISGRACE!

  11. disgrace why and how?

    and what kinds of evolution you taking about? my oppinion is……….. GAY IS GOOD 😉

    don’t be Stupid man.

    Happy Dashain to all Nepali 🙂

  12. i agree with rosie
    if the gays are doing a pride march in gai jatra surely wouldnt it seem like a ‘joke’ or regarded comical rather than for its true purpose to raise awareness and show there are people that are different in the society and are equally deserving to be part of it.

    i dont mean to be rude or offend anyone but ‘gay’ is a very broad term. from what i see in the pictures, it seems more like a transexual pride day?

    in response to the person who’s talking about ‘confusing the youth’ they are already confused by the lack of awareness. its everyone’s right to be educated about these matters especially since they are very relevant to their everyday lives. if nepal is so far back, isn’t this a step forward?

    i dont mean to to attack on ‘anonymous’ personally and irespect your opinions but from the sounds of it, you seem very confused yourself. nepal would only be known as the land of ‘gays’ if it was the only country in the whole world where gay people lived (duh?) being gay has nothing to do with nationality or where you’re from

    good day to all

  13. I aggree with Gayn Gurung, Rose and Co.

    glad to hear, that there are people with good and the same time smart thinking ;0)

    great time and happy merry christmas and Happy New Year 2011 to every one 🙂

  15. Everyone, though it’s a post from year back, I can’t stfu reading some these anti – gay cmts.
    If you hate LGBT then simply blame the straight people because they are the one who gave birth to them. And what’s so wrong w/homosexual ppl ? Let them breathe the air in peace.
