Transgender now an official sex in Nepal

Pin it

Nepal, despite being a notoriously conservative country, apparently has the United States beat when it comes to progressive views of gender self-identification. The county's government just announced that they will be adding a "third-sex" option to their upcoming census to accommodate individuals who do not identify as male or female. Sunil Babu Panta, Nepal's first openly gay parliamentarian, commented that this is an exciting decision for Nepal's transgender community.

India has also elected to include a transgender category in their 2011 census. 2020, United States?
