Pride & Prejudice – Stamford, CT

October 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Free

On April 25, 2016, Xulhaz Mannan and K Mahbub Rabbi, activists in Dhaka, Bangladesh were murdered by Islamic extremists for advocating LGBT rights as the founders of Roopbaan, the first LGBT magazine in Bangladesh.

Roopbaan has become a platform that strives to advance LGBT rights to love in a country that proclaims their love as illegal and punishable by law.

It is important to address the issues of violence, safety and identity in the face of discrimination against the South Asian and Muslim LGBT community.

Come join us on national coming out month to learn about the Bangladeshi LGBTQ community and celebrate pride with the members of Roopbaan and the voices of the community.

A creative exhibition will be held for art, poetry, and photography.
