Nepal Invites Gay/Lesbian Couples to Marry on Everest

Published Date Author: , April 23rd, 2010

Everest could become the new Brokeback Mountain with Nepal promoting gay weddings on the famous mountain. Nepal Tourism Minister Sharat Singh Bhandari said the country wants to re-establish tourism and hopes to become the first nation in Asia to allow same-sex marriages, Timesonline reports.

Mr Bhandari said he has already written to the International Conference on Gay & Lesbian Tourism in Boston. “As the world knows, Nepal is the land of Mount Everest, world’s highest peak and the birth place of Lord Buddha, light of Asia,” the message said.

“I, therefore, would like to take this opportunity to invite and welcome all the sexual and gender minorities from around the world.”
