Study Report: Breaking the Binary - LGBT+ inclusive approach to the women, peace and security agenda in Nepal and Myanmar

This report presents the findings of a study into LGBT+ inclusive approaches to conflict and the women, peace, and security (WPS) agenda. The study considered the specific lived experiences of LGBT+ people in Myanmar and Nepal. While the two contexts differ greatly, some similarities of issues faced by the LGBT+ communities in both countries were identified, including identity and citizenship; social stigma; violence and exclusion; lack of equal participation in decision-making; and lack of equal economic opportunities. The report also examines the linkages between WPS and LGBT+ issues into the WPS and broader gender equality agenda in both countries.
