Immigration law specialist Sharmistha Michaels recently contributed to an article by Shaheen Mamun of Black Antelope Law regarding LGBT asylum claims for Bangladeshi nationals. As the article states: “Bangladesh remains one of 72 countries where homosexuality is illegal. In accordance with section 377 of the Bangladesh Penal Code, sexual activity between men, whether consensual or not, is illegal and punishable by a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. Freedom House reported in 2017 that ‘societal discrimination (against LGBT persons) remains the norm’.”
