Nepal holds first Pride parade in Kathmandu

According to local media, Nepal has celebrated the LGBT+ community with marches and parades since 2002, however, this event marks the first time such an occasion has been put on during Pride season.

The parade was organised by the Queer Youth Group (QYG) and the Queer Rights Collective alongside other LGBT+ groups within the country that helped raise funds.
