UK AMA Nomination: Muslim Drag Queens

Earlier this year, filmmaker & journalist Kieran Yates produced “Muslim Drag Queens” for Guardian Docs. Which received over one million views on the Guardian’s website.

The documentary featured Asifa Lahore and followed asylum-seeker Ali as he transformed into Shilpa Jaan.

Kieran has been nominated for a UK AMA award for Best Investigation piece, if Kieran wins – this will be the first AMA award for a Gaysian documentary.

This is one of the biggest nights for Asian media professionals!

Good luck Kieran!
