One comment on “Miss Universe Nepal 2020 to accept Transwomen candidates

  1. … but Mr. International saying they will accept trans-gender men met with tepid feedback…

    Mr. Tinio, I wonder if this means many trans-gender women in Nepal – which I imagine is quite conservative – are actually from across the border, from the vibrant democracy of neighbor India.

    A few years ago, India decriminalized (overt) homosexuality. But certainly it takes time…

    Is this being done partly because there are no legit gay pageants in these countries? No avenue or forum for the full expression of their pageant dreams?

    More to the point, does this point to a GROWING-SIMMERING LGBT+ movement in the Subcontinent – India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and perhaps even Pakistan?
