The internet and social media has played an important role in the lives of millions of queer people. It’s a platform which has helped us in self-discovery and create our own collective. Like many other people on the Pride Nepal Tee campaign, Bandika is also someone who I met online. The young student identifies as a bisexual girl and for her, the process was natural.
In these photos by Stock Photography Nepal, Bandika glows wearing our Pride Nepal Swayambhunath Tee in the buzzing Thamel. She expressed her excitement to be part of the tee campaign and I have nothing but my gratitude to express. The Pride Nepal Tees are available to buy in Nepal ONLINE through Metaphor Fashion, for outside of Nepal orders – please message Metaphor or lexlimbu.
