Event Details

Bangladesh, a South Asian Muslim majority country, is one of the 76 countries which still has a sodomy law criminalizing same-sex activities. However, homosexuality thrives behind the closed doors. Being out is rare. The notion of sexual orientation and gender identity does not exist though the society has been more or less tolerant to the gender variant. Indeed LGBT rights is not an issue in the country which is struggling with widespread poverty, faltering democracy, rampant corruption and a fast developing economy. Despite all the hurdles, the LGBT movement in Bangladesh is gaining momentum.

BCPC’s International Fellow Shakhawat Hossain will be sharing his experience about how it is being gay in Bangladesh. He would also be providing insight into the LGBT movement of the country and hear from participants how it has been here in USA.
