Founded and lead by Sohel Ahmed, Aponghor is an LGBTQ+ group for the Bangladeshi community living and loving in the UK!

Running on the first Monday of every month, Aponghor meet-ups are a life-line to the Bengali LGBTQIA+ community, providing advice on everything from housing to sexual health, asylum seeking, family support and social events. Aponghor have marched in the London Pride Parade for the last 4 years and even appeared on the big screens of Piccadilly Circus when Covid stopped the parade from happening in 2020.

Aponghor is open to people of all genders from the Bengali LGBTQIA+ community and their friends!   

On Monday 16 May, Aponghor will have an extra special, festive touch with food and drink, music and dancing to celebrate Eid Mubarak!

If you would like to know more or are interested in joining, please email ahmed_sohel@icloud.com or visit their Facebook page.
