Activist/Actress of HIGHWAY Bhumika Shrestha in the middle

The third annual Gaijatra Gay Pride Festival took place in the lake city of Pokhara on Friday 3rd of August. An estimated 2500 participants which included gays, lesbians, transgender people and their supporters marched the 2-mile long parade. The pride which has been organised annually by Blue Diamond Society is held to seek recognition as a third gender in citizen certificates, to allow same-sex marriage and to criminalize discrimination based on sexual preference. Few well known faces from the gay community including model Meghna Lama and activist/actress Bhumika Shrestha were spotted at the event. 

Having been part of the festival in the previous year during the filming for Lex in Nepal, I can share that the atmosphere is definitely electric! Below is the video from Gay Pride 2011, Narayangadh.
PS. The event has been captured wonderfully by Umesh Pun and AlchiLagyo.com for presenting us with the photos. Cheers guys! Click HERE to see the full album.

  1. I support GAY pride and i think it’s absolutely great, but it’s so annoying when some of the men are more beautiful than us gals haha..

  2. I am not a homophobic and i dont have anything against gays as i beleive in each to their own but why do they have to go prancing around in the street and all. I find it a little scary actually, if i am honest.

  3. let people love , let them live nothing to judge as every men were created equal. wish safe days and more acceptance in coming days.

  4. I too think Lex is gay(not that it matters anyway). ‘Coming out’ can mean a great deal to a closet gay so when time comes he will probably let you know until then everyone can draw their own conclusion.

    Sadly you are either homophobic or really insecure(sexually),although you say you aren’t homophobic. They are proudly representing who they are on one day of the year and no one should be allowed to.

  5. OMG they are soo awsomeeee n i think they can dance better than shakira hips dont lie. n they hav very good clothes and make to compliment their bootys. xoxo

  6. Why are you trying to promote “gay pride” in Nepal for? Do you feel proud of it? Well, I don’t and I don’t think majority of Nepalese people don’t either.

    Why don’t you pick a better subject/title? There are more better topics to talk about than this, such as Nepal’s government stuff, poverty, unemployment, etc. Many poor Nepalese people are suffering and dieing in Nepal, and here you are promoting/blogging about “gay pride”.

    If you are doing this just to get attention, then trust me, you will get more if you blog about Nepal’s government issues that causing trouble to Nepalese citizens, because majority of Nepalese are more concerned about this stuff then “gay pride”.

  7. Lex is Gay and there’s no doubt on that. You can figure it out the way he speaks too girly and all….. But who cares everyone has the right to live in the world.

  8. umm i know m 2 years late in this page but wud u mind tellin me where its gonna b d pride fest in 2014?… which city?
