LGBT Travellers

Homosexuality is illegal in Bangladesh, and homosexual acts are punishable under Bangladesh law with deportation, fines and/or prison. Such harsh laws are rarely enforced, but nevertheless, gay travellers would be wise to be discreet in Bangladesh.

Boys of Bangladesh (www.boysofbangladesh.org) is the oldest and largest organisation of self-identified Bangladeshi gay men.

Sakhiyani (groups.yahoo.com/group/sakhiyani) is Bangladesh’s first online group for lesbian and bisexual women.
