Blue Diamond Society (BDS) is the key organization standing up for equal rights for LGBT people in Nepal. They are saving lives by fighting HIV while demanding respect for gay and transgender people.

This great organisation is about to be shut down because of one local government officer - who hates the amazing work they've been doing.

Without Blue Diamond Society, HIV rates could quickly soar because people cannot access medication and care. The increased arrests of LGBT people, ordered by the official, are going unappealed because the legal service is gone. 

People are being attacked and the local police are under orders to do what the Chief District Officer tells them.

The new Prime Minister just took office and is hosting a regional Human Rights meeting with the United Nations - because of Nepal's exceptional record with Blue Diamond Society. Ask the Prime Minister to intervene now.

Nepal's largest LGBT service is being denied renewal of NGO registration without cause. The Prime Minister must intervene and save Blue Diamond Society.

TO: Prime Minister of Nepal

Please ensure Blue Diamond Society's NGO certification is re-instated immediately, so it can continue to provide award-winning services to LGBT people in Nepal.
