“I am nursing a very painful infection in my foot, but I can not stop dancing that is my identity. I chose to stand by my beliefs. I am a woman - this is my only beautiful reality. I am incarcerated because I chose to be the voice of countless women like me who has been raised from woman's inner turmoil. My feet to dance and convey a story" – Momo

Momo was growing up in a conservative Muslim family in Bangladesh. She was ridiculed for a behavior called too effeminate. She was often told she was mentally ill. The experience left her with one crucial question: "who am I?" The emotional toll, constant humiliation, and alienation Are part of Momo's life. My ongoing project "My feet to dance and convey a story" focuses on the lives of the LGBTQR+ community in Bangladesh. They have been fighting for their fundamental rights of loving with chosen ones and rights to live with equal rights.
