Documentary “Other Nature”:
Nepal, a nascent republic, has passed laws that protect sexual minorities and allow for same-sex marriage. The government has even taken the initiative to create a new term that recognizes trans-gendered people as a “third gender”. No action, however, has been taken to implement the new laws. A rare insight into the LGBT community in Nepal.
