Nepal’s first gay politician Sunil Babu Pant talks to an AFP correspondent during a interview in Kathmandu on May 1, 2008. Nepal will get its first gay activist in government after he was selected to represent a small communist party in the constituent assembly, a party official said. Pant is the head of the Blue Diamond society, the only gay rights group in Nepal, a largely Hindu, caste-dominated and conservative nation.
