Gender: M/F/T

An interesting headline attracted my attention. Apparently, this is not completely new news. In 2011, when Nepal conducted its census, it allowed for a third gender option for people who did not want to be identified as either male or female. The more recent headline is about the country issuing state IDs with a third gender option.

I've only been in Nepal as a tourist, and that over a decade ago. I don't know what it's previous record on violence against LGBT and its gender queer population is. However, this is a nice moment. And this is a wonderful picture, cycle rickshaw pulled dancers and all.
