Love him , hate him , just like Caitlyn Jenner is loved and hated, Milo is one of my favorite LGBT stars . Funny enough , Milo does not like being branded to the LGBT movement , in fact prefers being called a faggot , but whether he is conservative or

liberal, he is gay and is a wonderful example of gay genius .

A British journalist , Milo has built his name as a conservative provocateur with his seemingly tough talking points and tongue lashing at feminism and even racism .He has rubbed many feminists the wrong way yet rubbed many women the right way ,just like any charming gay man would do lol.

Though I do not wholly subsrcibe to his ideologies and his views on feminism , I must say he is a very effective communicator , clear in expression of his opinions .His brilliant presentation of his views coupled with his gay identity , is proof the gay intelligentsia or LGBT intelligentsia or Rainbow Intelligentsia is alive and kicking .




London got a Muslim Mayor that supports gay marriage. Leicester City in England gets the English Premier League title in what is being called the greatest fairy tale story in soccer and the greatest President USA has ever had who boldly stands for LGBT rights dropped the mic at the prestigious White House Correspondents Dinner signifying the start of his less than a year departure from the most powerful office in the world.

The lessons we draw from these victorious events is that whatever we stand for let us give it our best and stand our ground. In the end we will win.

Let sexy Queen and sexy Freddie Mercury remind us LGBT people together with our non-LGBT allies “WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS”.

Rainbow Line :And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end. 



We normally do not like discussing about sad LGBT moments like murder but in this instance it is prudent to talk about this . Homophobia and homophobic attacks are a crime against humanity because attacks perpretrated against the person are based on their sexual identity just like genocide is based on one’s racial or ethnic identity.

In many homophobic countries in the world living as a gay person is EXTREMELY TOUGH . In fact , the more out of the closet one is in such societies ,the more danger they are in . However most have no other choice but to endure as life in the closet can also be stressful.

Many Western countries are trying to welcome LGBT persons even though traces of homophobia and transphobia still lurk in such free societies.

This fiasco of numerous attacks on LGBT persons are evidence of a failed state and failed political systems . Governments are very timid when it comes to providing equal treatment to a people that are despised by majority .

The solution would be strong international regime to provide LGBT persons rights in their respective countries or direct unprocessed asylum for LGBT persons in LGBT friendly countries .

Yet we can only give opinions but know that Life is not a bed of roses and we face challenges in every part of the world .And being LGBT carries a heavy price of persecution ,rejection and insecurity .

Nonetheless , we should live on and enjoy life in the midst of such challenges that never stop the reality of the existence of LGBT persons in society worldover.


Editor Of Bangladesh’s Only LGBT Magazine Is Hacked To Death

The body of gay rights activist Xulhaz Mannan rests in a wooden coffin as people pay their respects in Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka.


A gay rights activist and his friend were killed Monday night in Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, by a group of assailants reportedly armed with machetes and guns.

Their deaths are the latest in “a series of attacks on progressive voices that has deepened anxiety about growing fundamentalism in the tiny Muslim country, which borders India,” NPR’s Julie McCarthy tells our Newscast unit.

Xulhaz Mannan and a man said to be a close friend were slain by a half-dozen men posing as couriers when they forced their way inside Mannan’s apartment, Julie reports.

Mannan worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development and was the editor of Roopbaan, the country’s only LGBT magazine, and had helped organize a rally for LGBT youths called The Rainbow Rally on April 14, the Bengali New Year. Another friend of Mannan’s, Sara Hossain, told The New York Times that the activist had received death threats from people who opposed the rally.

An al-Qaida-linked group said it was responsible for the two killings. The Associated Press reports that “the claim by Ansar-al-islam — which said it targeted the two men on Monday night because they were ‘pioneers of practicing and promoting homosexuality’ — raised doubts about Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s repeated assurances that authorities have the security situation under control.”

USAID published a statement following Mannan’s death, calling him “a dedicated and courageous advocate for human rights.”

“Xulhaz sought to shape a society that was more diverse and inclusive. He believed in the people of Bangladesh, and he strove to make the world a better place for everyone.”

The Wall Street Journal spoke with an employee at Mannan’s apartment building about what happened there:

“Abdur Rahim, the caretaker of the six-story building in which Mr. Mannan lived, said two young men posing as couriers entered Mr. Mannan’s first-floor apartment on Monday evening. Four other men then followed them into the apartment.

” ‘We heard shouts and then loud bangs,’ Mr. Rahim said.

“Mr. Rahim said building guards and a police patrol tried to stop the group as they tried to escape after the killing. The killers escaped by firing shots that injured a policeman and a building guard, Mr. Rahim said.”

Mannan and his friend were cut down just days after English professor Rezaul Karim Siddique was hacked to death as he walked to his home in the city of Rajshahi, Bangladesh. Julie reported over the weekend that Siddique may have attracted attention with his focus on cultural enrichment after he organized a music school.

She notes that the latest attacks might signal a shift: “It appears that the assailants may be expanding their range of targets. Previously, the grisly attacks have focused on atheists and bloggers critical of Islamic fundamentalism.”

Earlier this month, an atheist law student named Nazimuddin Samad was hacked and shot to death by men on a busy street in Dhaka. Samad reportedly had been named on a “hit list” of bloggers sent to the Bangladesh Interior Ministry by a group of radical Islamists in 2013.

As the Two-Way has reported, “last year, at least four secular bloggers were hacked to death in Bangladesh and a publisher who worked with one of those bloggers was stabbed to death.”
