Gay Buddhists, following in the Buddha’s footsteps

Pink Mountain Travels and Tours is, the company says, “the first and only travel and tour agency for/by gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) in Nepal.” And as Sify News reports, Pink Mountain’s first group bookings “are not from bridal pairs or honeymooning couples but from gay Buddhists who want to follow in the Buddha’s footsteps and meditate in his birthplace.”

Many of Pink Mountain’s customers are members of Europe’s Gay Buddhist Sangh (GBS), whose charter reads that the organization seeks “to introduce the teachings of the Buddha to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) folk in such a way that we honour and respect all beings and where they are in their lives, and help them to preserve a healthy and positive self-image, particularly about their sexuality.”
