Nepal to Host First Annual Gay Sporting Competition

Published Date Author: , March 23rd, 2012

“Welcome to South Asia’s Most LGBT-Friendly Country” – this may well become the new motto for Nepal, which is set to host the region’s first sports competition for the lesbian, gay, bisexuals and transgender community.

The event’s announcement comes less than a year after Nepal hosted South Asia’s first lesbian wedding, which took place shortly after the country recognized a “third gender” in its census data.

The event, “Blue Diamond National Sport Competition” will feature volleyball, football, long jump, martial arts, tennis and yoga, among other sports. It is set to start in late September or early October, organizers announced earlier this week.
