Aponghor: Bengali LGBTQ+ Group
Aponghor is an LGBTQ+ group for the Bangladeshi community living and loving in the UK! They provide support services, social events and much more for LGBTQ+ Bangladeshi people.
Lead by Sohel Ahmed, Aponghor is pioneering in its support for the Bangladeshi LGBTQ+ community. Cultural and religious systems make it difficult, if not impossible, for many Bangladeshi LGBTQ+ people to come out so we aim to provide a safe and inclusive space for all people to come together and celebrate who they are.
There is a group meet-up on the first Monday of every month and a weekly surgery in the Poplar Union café, e5 Roasthouse, on Tuesday afternoons:
Monthly Group Meet Up
Monday 6 April, 4 May & 1 June

To book an appointment for a 1-2-1 session, please email Sohel Ahmed on firstname.lastname@example.org including your name, email and phone number and he will get back to you with further details.
