What the law say's about being gay in Bangladesh
Being gay in Bangladesh is still illegal, and according to Section 377A of BPC - adult homosexual sex acts are illegal and will be punished with deportation, fines and/or up to 10 years, sometimes life imprisonment. Please be careful when in public places. Recently In Bangladesh, there has been many incident's when people had been set up and caught by the local police and consequently press charged. Which has resulted in individuals id and personal details being revealed in public. So please be carefull be safe and don't be a victim of conspiracy.
As a muslim majority and homosexuality still being illegal in Bangladesh, gay guy's often turn to prominent gay sites and social networking sites to meet other gay guys such as our very own benGAYliz and other sites sites including Manjam and Facebook. Since there are no bars, clubs or specifically designated social meeting places available for the LGBTI community, social networking sites has become the ultimate networking platform for many LGBTI people. This does not mean such sites are only being used by the LGBTI community only. Many users of social networking sites have been known to be targeted by online sex offenders, blackmailers and general criminals who uploads fake profiles, pretending to be gay/lesbian and targets innocent website users by convincing their victims to meet in non public places such as student dorm, hostels, hotel rooms, private home and other non public places. Once met in a convenient place they will then convience their victims to pose for camera/video and later use it to blackmail people and demand large sums of money. If the victim refuses to pay they threatens to expose innocent victims by outing them to their friends and family or by uploading indecent pictures on Facebook and other social networking sites. Naturally the victims gives up to these online offenders and pays off whatever amount is asked. Unfortunately not everyone can afford to pay big ransom or take the risk of being outed to their friends and family, and end up in committing suicide. Many such cases often gets unreported to the police and unheard. So therefore benGAYliz like to warn all our members and other social networking site users including LGBTI dating sites and facebookers users to be extremely careful and be extra cautious when meeting your dates privately. We strongly urge all our site members to meet in public places and never to bring a stranger back to your home or hotel rooms unless you are absolutely convienced you have nothing to fear. Many of our site users have also reported to be robbed in their hotel rooms by their online dates. There is no specific ways to identify such online crime commuters, however according to many victims, these online offenders frequently change their online profiles and often works in groups. So once again we strongly advice all our site members and other social website users to take extra security measures when meeting people online.
Generally being gay in Bangladesh in not very unusual. With no bars and clubs to socialise and meet other lgbt guys, the young generation have welcomed the internet and mobile communication technology as the alternative method linking up with the like minded. Read full article...

Summer holidays is here and most of us will be looking for jobs. Here are a few guidelines for looking for jobs in London. These guidelines will apply to you specifically if you are a foreign student in London.
- First and foremost step of jobsearch is to have a CV. YOU MUST have a up-to-date CV. Without a CV you will be wasting your time and chances of being considered for any job vacancies.
- Make sure your skills and expriences are relevant to the job you are applying for.
For example, if you are applying for a customer service job with Debenham or Selfridges, make sure you have experience in retail and customer service. If you have recently come to UK, you must show on your CV you have worked for a similar company before. Companies like Sony, Samsung and department stores like Arong are well known and operates all over the world. Having expriences of working for in any of these companies will increase your chances of getting a job with Selfridges or Debenham more then having no previous expriences at all.
Most companies will not even bother phoning up or chase international companies for referances. But do make sure the address for any contacts or referances you mention on your CV does exist, because companies will search online and cross check the company and addresses you mentioned on the CV are valid and does actually exist.
If you are applying for a job with McDonald, Burgar King, KFC, Pizzahut or Subway. Then make sure you have expriences in catering. KFC and Pizzahut have branches in Bangladesh. Having experiences of working in any of these places will increse your chances of finding any catering job in UK. Again make sure you have the right skills for the job you are appling for. Best way to make sure you explain your skills and expriences properly is to visit the companies website you say you have worked for and find out their job specs. For example if you have worked for KFC before, then go to KFC's website and look in their job section for skills and expriences required to work as a team member at KFC. Then mention those skills in your CV, under your skills and expriences of working for KFC.
- Apply thorough job agencies like Adecco, Spring and Reed.
Job agiencies are a great way to step in to the job market. Visit job agencies in person and hand in CV. This way job consultants get to meet you and if there are any jobs available, they will immediately start thinking if you will meet the critaria for the jobs they currently have. If you do, things will move faster and you will start working sooner then you will if applied online. It's best to mention you are open to any job offers (if truly you are). This also will increse your chances of getting employed faster.
- Don't be fooled by thinking agencies takes chunk of your pay and wages. They DO NOT!! It's a general misconception that agiencies takes your money. Professional job agencies only takes commision from the company that offers you a job. So really you have noting to loose.
- Never under estimate your skills and expriences. Whatever skills you posses are important. If you speak two languages, thats a great credit to your CV. Many people can only speak in one language. Being able to speak in more then one language already pushes you ahead of those who can only speak one language. Likewise if you have exprience of looking after children or an elderly person, be sure to mention that on your CV. If you do not have lot of skills and expriences to mention on your CV. Having expriences of caring for children and elderly will show that you can be responsible, caring and be in charge of things and people.
- Finally keep your plain and simple. A CV in black and white looks highly professional for general jobs, then colours and picture of yourself on the CV.
Here are some important links to job search and examples of CV
