Nepal to bid for Outgames!

Nepal is to bid for the next Asia Pacific OutGames. Nepal's first openly gay MP, Sunil Pant said this during the 2nd Asia Pacific OutGames in Wellington, New Zealand. If Nepal goes ahead with the bid and is successful, the games will most likely be held in Kathmandu. Nepal has made a number of bold and positive moves on GLBTI rights in recent years. In 2007, it became the first country in the region to decriminalise homosexuality. The new Constitution may also allow for same-sex marriages.
