Nepal is amongst the most progressive countries in Asia for LGBTQ+ people due to several laws giving rights to display one's preferred gender and forbidding discrimination based on sexual orientation. Its people are creating a much safer and welcoming environment than their South-Asian neighbours, which goes well with a saying in Nepal: "Guests are Gods." Upon arrival, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see the third gender option "other" in your tourist arrival card. Everyone is welcome and respected as long as cultural practices are followed. Nepal has still some way to go, but it certainly is a place anyone from the LGBTQ+ community can visit.
