The peace process in Nepal is significant not just because it brings to an end 11 years of violent conflict, which is an historic achievement in itself, but also because it carries with it the hopes of millions of Nepalese people for a better, fairer society in which they can finally claim their rights as equal members of this society. The foundation of lasting peace, the future protection of human rights, and the capacity for development and prosperity will be greatly strengthened if these hopes are realised. The voices of lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people (metis),are often among the most marginalized in society due to deep ­seated norms, prejudice and discrimination which has often led to profound social exclusion. Many LGBT people in Nepal are also from groups that suffer other longstanding discrimination such as Madhesis, indigenous people, Dalits or persons living with disabilities – they suffer double and sometimes multiple discrimination.
