Nepal to Begin Issuing Third Gender Citizen Certificates.

The AP is reporting that the government of Nepal will soon begin issuing third gender IDs for Nepali citizens who do not identify as male or female. Nepal Home Ministry official Bhola Siwakot says that the order to issue third gender citizen certificates has been sent to all district administration offices and that the ID will be available free of charge for anyone who wants it. Nepal’s Supreme Court actually voted in favor of third gender citizen certificates in 2007, but it has taken over 5 years to implement the decision.
