Hundreds from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) community braved monsoon rains to hold a gay pride parade in the Nepalese capital on Wednesday, led by South Asia’s only openly homosexual lawmaker.

The march was organised by Nepalese parliamentarian Sunil Pant, a vocal gay rights campaigner who rode through the city on an elephant followed by around 500 supporters, many of whom danced and played musical instruments.
