without any window of His own: a video from Bangladesh

This video describes the issues and concerns of the gay community in Bangladesh, including the colonial law Section 377 it shares with India.

without any window of His own, directed by Tanvir Alim and Arifur Rahman, was prepared for the third annual ‘Under the Rainbow III’ festival held in Dhaka in November 2011. The festival was organized by Goethe-Institut, in partnership with local organizations including Srishti Cultural Centre, Bandhu Social Welfare Society, Boys of Bangladesh, and Swaprovo.

We thank Tanvir Alim for sharing this video and express solidarity with our LGBT comrades in Bangladesh!
