Authorities in Bangladesh raided a community centre on the outskirts of capital city Dhaka on Friday and arrested 27 men for “homosexuality,” according to police.

A commander of Bangladesh’s Rapid Action Battalion, who made the arrests, said the suspects were mostly students aged between 20 and 30 who had travelled to the centre for a weekend event,  according to the Associated Press.

Police reportedly found drugs and condoms in the men’s possession.

He said the men would be charged with drug offenses rather than Bangladesh’s colonial-era sodomy law, because they were detained before they had sex,  according to an Associated Press report.

However, a different Bangladesh police spokesman told Agence France-Presse that the men had been arrested “for homosexuality” but that it was not yet clear how they would be charged.

How to put public opinion on your side when you arrest gays? Say that you found drugs and condoms. Simple and unprovable, hence irrefutable.

Yesterday it was Indonasia where 141 men arrested allegedly of being in gay sex party. I could not imagine living under discriminating and homophobic rules of those countries, mainly Islamic countries.

Thank god there are countries around the world that understand that to be gay is the same as to be left handed. The backward countries that continue to be part of repression will soon find out that to be antigay is the way to lose at least 14% of the public's business. All those Gay men and women should keep trying to move to a more tolerant country that values 100% of humans. Just boycott any bad society.

3, I bet you were so so angry reading that article! Head in the sand is a great solution. Lol.

I think we all know some gays can't live without their drugs and demand society accepts them with open arms. Same for their inability to keep it in their pants!
