South Asian LGBT people: between struggles for marriage or mere survival


Kathmandu/Mumbai/Peshawa, Jul 21 (EFE/EPA).- The quest for legalizing marriage between persons of the same-sex has once again put Nepal at the forefront in terms of the rights of the LGBTIQ community in South Asia, which has faced deadly attacks and stabbings in Bangladesh, while in countries like Afghanistan being a homosexual can be reason enough for being legally punished or whipped.Sunita Lama and Laxmi met at a Kathmandu bus stop 10 years ago, fell in love, and now live together.Although the two would like to get married, Nepali law does not allow it, despite it being one of the most progressive country in the region for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer people.
