Come and be #Odbhut (অ"#ত/Bangla for queer) for a launch night of Bangla

inspired entertainment and dancing till late. However you identify (British/ Bengali/

Bangladeshi/Sylheti/Friends/anything else!) : EVERYBODY is welcome regardless of

fight for LGBTQ rights. There will also be screening of a short film ‘Planchette on 25 April’ by

Dipa Mahbuba Yasmin, a series of short readings from Bangladesh and more.
