Queer Footprints is an event that will bring the power of London’s growing Bangladeshi LGBTQIA+ community into a welcoming space. Hear talks from activists such as Mazharul Islam and Tashnuva Ferdousi at Tower Hamlets’ flagship Bangali arts and culture centre.
The event is a collaboration between Friends of the Joiners Arms (FOTJA) and The Rainbow Tree. The FOTJA is an organisation dedicated to protecting and creating queer spaces, having fought against the closure of the Joiners Arms, a queer pub on Hackney Road. The Rainbow Tree is a Bangladeshi/Bangali LGBTQIA+ community group which aims to create safe and inclusive online platforms for Bangladeshi and Bangali queer people around the world.
