An LGBTQ couple in Nepal has become the first in the nation to receive official same-sex marriage status, marking a historic achievement.

The couple, Maya Gurung and Surendra Pandey, registered their marriage at a local administration office with the support of LGBTQ rights activist Sunil Babu Pant.

Nepal’s supreme court issued an interim order earlier this year enabling the registration of same-sex marriages, and the Home Ministry recently made changes to allow all local administration offices to register such marriages. (Trending: Chilling Surveillance Program Under Biden Exposed)

“After 23 years of struggle we got this historic achievement, and finally Maya and Surendra got their marriage registered at the local administration office,” said Sunil Babu Pant, a gay former parliamentarian.

“It was quite unexpected and it was a positive breeze for us,” Pant said.

Nepal has made significant progress in LGBTQ rights since a 2007 court decision, with the constitution explicitly prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.
