Bhumika Shrestha is a transgender woman who works for LGBT rights in Nepal. She’s the first transgender woman from Nepal to travel abroad in ‘other’ category. Bhumika is also involved with the Blue Diamond Society.

Kathmandu Tribune phoned her to know five things that we don’t know yet.

  • I haven’t changed my sex yet. A lot of people speculate that I have done it but that’s not the case.

  • I am a grandmother and I love it. My sister has a beautiful son.

  • A lot of people think that I’m a proud person but that’s false. I’d say I am confident and my confidence makes other feel uncomfortable. My confidence shouldn’t make people think that I’m proud.

  • I cry a lot. I am an emotional person and even little things touch my heart.

  • I trust people without any hesitation and people have betrayed me a lot in the past.
