| Boys of Bangladesh (BoB) started its journey as an on-line Yahoo group in late 2002 with aims such as bringing together the isolated gay men in Bangladesh, creating a platform where gay men can help each other come to terms with their sexuality by sharing their thoughts, feelings and experiences and ultimately building a gay society based on friendship and respect for all human beings. With years of consistent work, this group has become the largest and the most active network for gay men in Bangladesh. The group is moderated by a team of volunteers, selected from the group members.In addition to the on-line presence, BoB organizes get-togethers, film shows, picnics, parties etc where gay men in Bangladesh can meet each other and make friends. These social events give them a sense of belonging, which helps boost their self-esteem.Recently BoB has started to fill up the vacuum of gay activism in Bangladesh but we believe that it is essential to have a strong united gay community before we can actually start fighting for our rights. Hence community building is on the top of our agenda.With the help and support of our friends home and abroad, we hope to build a better society free of discriminations.Welcome to our group, where we firmly believe that together we can make a difference for us.
