Nepal Lawmaker Asks Facebook To Include Third Gender

Sunilbabu Pant — the only openly gay parliament member in Nepal — has written Facebook founders Mark Zuckerberg and Chris Hughes asking the social media site for the option of “third gender” or “others” when signing up, since some people “who do not identify as male or female continue to be sidelined by Facebook’s options.” Pant told Business “he has not received any response from Facebook but was hopeful.”
