    Wow IDAHO-T is a brilliant idea. Had I known about the event in advance I would have tried to be there. Wonder why the appropriate and supporting authorities are not taking any initiative in holding a GAY pride in Bangladesh? Surely it’s about time to catch up with Calcutta and Delhi in this context!!
