From TV shows to new NGO’s, Nepal's Sunil Pant teaches a
lesson or two on innovating in restrictive environments.

Sunil Pant
is the sort of activist politician you rarely see in the United States
these days. He makes regular headlines, is always stirring things up in
Parliament, knows the right people to get on his side, and simply never
stops pushing the envelope. Unlike U.S. politicians, he has far less
concern with pleasing the right people and making his way up. A computer
programmer by training, his primary concern is promoting and defending
the rights of Nepal's LGBTI community.
And in that regard, he has been innovating up a storm lately, with his
latest venture the introduction of a weekly TV show on youth and LGBTI
issues, the first of its kind in Nepal. Pant is pushing all sorts of
cultural, religious, and political boundaries and no one is stopping

I think this is good. Unlike US, Nepal is quite open about accepting Gays, Lesbian and Transgender relationships.
One thing Nepal can do is to promote tourism targeting these groups abroad. Tourism focused on these groups can be very beneficial and we can get world attention too.

After all, we need economic benefit and they will get freedom to enjoy their relationship along with natural beauty.
