However immoral, abhorrent and illegal her judgment, it was rational Last year, the first magazine for homosexuals was launched with little opposition.
Baangla says there is a reason they chose to share the story through a female character: the LGBT movement has so far been male-dominated, and they wanted to bring a change in that. Kiki Muddar, 43, was described as a "manipulative, wicked woman" who "brainwashed" Polly Chowdhry, 34, into beating up her daughter Ayesha Ali, who was found half naked with more than 50 injuries in the womens' home in London in August Bangladesh Bangladesh gets first lesbian comic strip "Dhee" comic, featuring young lesbian discovering her sexuality, has been launched to raise awareness of plight of gays.
Boys of Bangladesh, the country's largest gay rights group, on Saturday night launched "Dhee", the Bengali word for intellect or wisdom. We want our mind to be free. She even blamed Ayesha for making her fictional cancer worse.

The comic, to be handed out at gay rights seminars and other events, tells the story of Dhee, a girl who is attracted to other girls and falls in love. But in recent years, Bangladesh's young gay men have become increasingly assertive of their rights and have held low-key pride marches at the last two Bengali new year festivals. Post-mortem examinations revealed Ayesha died as a result of damage to the head from a blow or blows.
Chowdhury and Muddar have now been brought to justice for this despicable crime. Muddar had created a cyber-fantasy world to manipulate Chowdhury through a series of fictitious friends on social media.
The stories are told in comic strips that are portrayed flashcards, and will be used to conduct 15 countrywide campaigns to spread information about gender and sexuality. The girl had extensive bruising to her face, body and limbs, carpet burns suggesting she had been dragged and a bite mark on her right shoulder. The character of Dhee has been developed as an baangla tool for a broader project — Project Dhee, which aims to take forward the movement to establish and preserve rights of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender LGBT community in Bangladesh, according to BoB.
Lesbiaj further wanted to destigmatise the discussion of female sexuality in our society. Facing intense pressure to conform, Dhee mulls her enormous challenges and asks readers whether she should consider suicide, marry a man to please her family, flee the country, or stay and follow her heart.

Several hundred people attended the launch at the British Council in Dhaka, although entry was carefully scrutinised in case of protests by conservative hardliners.
