This report reviews the legal and social environment for LGBT1 people and organizations in Nepal alongside the discussions and findings from the Nepal National LGBTI2 Community Dialogue held in Kathmandu in AprilIt provides an overview of LGBT rights as related broadly to human rights conventions and laws, the legal environment and socio-cultural environment, and religion; and more specifically to education, employment, family affairs, health, media, political affairs and the capacity of LGBT organizations. The Dialogue brought together 57 activists from LGBT organizations from diverse backgrounds and subgroups along with representatives from the government, the National Human Rights Commission, UN agencies, the US government, and other development partners. The Dialogue was organized by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with
the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with support from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Adolescent Development and Participation Section (ADAP).
The report is part of a broader initiative entitled ‘Being LGBT in Asia: A Participatory Review and Analysis of the Legal and Social Environment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Persons and Civil Society.’Launched on Human Rights Day, 10 December 2012, ‘Being LGBT in Asia’ is a first-of-its-kind Asia-wide learning effort undertaken with Asian grassroots LGBT organizations and community leaders alongside UNDP and USAID.
With a focus on eight priority countries – Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Mongolia, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam – the effort examines LGBT lived experiences from a development and rights perspective.
Being LGBT in Asia’ has a number of objectives. It encourages networking between LGBT people across the region, building a knowledge baseline and developing an understanding of the capacity of LGBT organizations to engage in policy dialogue and community mobilization. Through this work, ‘Being LGBT in Asia’ promotes understanding
of the inherent human rights of LGBT people and the stigma and discrimination they face throughout the region. It also outlines steps toward LGBT-inclusive development work for UNDP and the UN system, USAID and the US Government, and other development partners, through research like this report and other social and multimedia products.
