Speaking before the screening film, Executive Director of Blue Diamond Society Manisha Dhakal said like male and female, members of this community must get the rights of marriage and living together.
“A report on same-sex marriage is gathering a dust but there have not been any initiatives to implement it,” said Dhakal.
