These three fictional depiction of real stories are a part of "Moving Memories", an archive of Bangladeshi queer migrants in the US.
Moving Memories was developed by ACFP 2020-21 Fellow Efadul Huq with contributions from artist Dipankar Singha, curator Rasel Ahmed and myself. The full digital exhibit is currently on view at South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA). I welcome you to explore the main exhibit and hear the powerful stories at saada.org/movingmemories
"I had already come out as queer and atheist. Then when I came out publicly as bisexual, my family came charging to my room. "
"After coming back to Bangladesh, there weren’t a lot of people who looked like me. There were a lot of cis spaces and lot of gay men."
Growing up, my parents would always tell us, “This country [Bangladesh] is not for you."
