Respect Court Order On Equal Rights To Sexual Minorities: OHCHR
PDF File Size: 210 KB | Download   
While members of third gender community are in the street to exercise their
fundamental rights, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal(OHCHR-Nepal), reiterates its call to the Govt. to speed up effective implementation of the Supreme Court verdict of 2007 on equal rights, particularly the issuance of citizenship and identity documents on grounds of equality to members of sexual minorities. OHCHR is concerned at the structured forms of discrimination and stigmatization faced by members of the third gender in Nepal, and the lack of respect for their human rights by the State. The Office points out that under key instruments and decisions of the UN human rights mechanisms, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, metis (LGBTI) and other sexual minorities have the right to non-discrimination and equality.
