Coming out against the odds & getting married wasn’t easy at times, but living your truth is always worth it!
Being Queer is a gift to you from Allah. Cherish it and live your queer life to the full!

Last week I got a call from the Independent that Gaysian Faces made it on the Rainbow List 2015: Ones to Watch.
It was a nice surprise, for the past couple of months… it’s been quite an organic journey.
My sincere thanks and gratitude to all the participants who have taken the time to share their stories with me and all of you.
Thank you to the Rainbow List Judges and the Gaysian Faces supporters for nominating me.
I’ll be heading back to San Francisco (where I’m originally from) for three weeks to visit my mum. San Francisco is home to Trikone; the oldest South Asian LGBTQ organisation in the world. I’ll be reconnecting with old friends from Trikone and they will be sharing their stories with you too. 🙂
