Sunil Babu Pant should be hailed to be courageous enough to announce that he is a gay and win election in a relatively conservative Nepali society. Now, he is representing the minority community in the Constituently Assembly (CA). Pant, 36, a computer engineer by training, won CA election from Gorkha district. He is one of the five CA members representing CPN(U), a small communist party.
Apart from being a CA member he is in LGBT (lesbian gay bisexual transgender) rights group in Blue Diamond Society, a society representing gay/bisexual people in Nepal.
If Pant is to be believed, he is not the only gay member in the parliament. He claims to know at least five more gay/lesbian members, personally.
