LGBTQIA+ - A Perspective From Nepal

In Nepal, people belonging to the LGBTQIA+ community are known as "Tesro lingi" (third gender). In Nepal, and in many other places in the world, members of the LGBTQIA+ community face lack of respect and acceptance due to discrimination. Families often reject them. They often become homeless, face bullying, and many are barred from accessing education.
