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.
The Supreme Court of Nepal, last year, delivered full judgment regarding a ground-breaking verdict it had announced the previous year, recognizing sexual minorities as being born such and entitled to all the rights and remedies all other Nepali citizens enjoyed. Ã¢â‚¬Å“My eyes were filled with tears when I read the Supreme Court decision,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Sunil Babu Pant at that time.
The people in the sexual minorities group are not there by choice but are born such and should be entitled to all the rights others enjoy. We wish all the best to Pant for his noble quest.
