The Invisible Minority: The Situation of LGBT Community in Bangladesh

17-06-2015

This research, jointly conducted by Global Human Rights Defence and Boys of Bangladesh, highlights the particular issues faced by the LGBT community in Bangladesh. The study was based on 50 interviews with individuals from the LGBT community (including community leaders). The purpose of the research was to conduct a needs analysis, aimed at examining the experience of the LGBT community in relation to the violations and social exclusion they face, the acceptance of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity within close social circles and access to networks and services for community development. The needs analysis has also enabled the LGBT community leaders to identify the needs of their movement and the larger LGBT community in Bangladesh to further develop a road map for their activities.
