Surveying Nepal’s Sexual and Gender Minorities: An Inclusive Approach
PDF File Size: 2.08 MB | Download   
Nepal’s 2011 national census was the first in the world to include a third gender category. However, it largely failed to capture those who identify as third gender due to administrative and logistical problems. In the wake of that experience in 2013, the Williams Institute of UCLA School of Law partnered with Nepal’s Blue Diamond Society (BDS) in order to develop a better questions and processes for identifying sexual and gender minorities in Nepal.
This report presents the findings from the almost 1,200 people who were surveyed in order to understand the diversity of sexual and gender minority identities in Nepal and, the demographics, socio-economic status indicators, experiences of stigma and discrimination, and access to HIV services of the country’s sexual and gender minorities.
The Williams Institute/BDS survey was fielded in September and October 2013. Respondents were recruited by using a network of HIV outreach workers, which means that this sample is not probability-based and may not be representative of the experiences of all sexual and gender minorities in Nepal. However, these initial findings provide a first glimpse at a greatly under-studied population in Nepal and present a foundation for designing future research.
