Xulhaz Mannan was in his apartment with a colleague when men wielding machetes  burst in and brutally murdered them. Xulhaz was a founder of Bangladesh’s only LGBTIQ magazine, a daring venture in a country where same-sex relations are illegal. Despite ample evidence, including CCTV footage and eyewitness testimony, one year on the killers have yet to be charged.  

Tell Bangladesh to bring Xulhaz’s killers to justice.
