nepal steps ahead after a supereme court decision to recognize transgender people in their census and adding a 3rd gender category.
“This year’s census in Nepal includes a new category for transgender people, thanks to a recently-passed anti-discrimination law. Parliamentarian Sunil Babu Pant says the transgender community is happy because, “This shows that the government has started to recognise them.””
