Mawaan Rizwan takes us on a journey…

Last week BBC 3 broadcasted “How Gay is Pakistan” a documentary that followed Mawaan Rizwan to Pakistan to check out and learn more the Pakistani LGBTQ community in Lahore and Karachi.

For over five years Mawaan has made us laugh with his twerking and outrageous sense of humour on his youtube channel.

Mawaan takes us on a journey where he meets LGBTQ advocacy groups, goes to an underground club, learns more about the MSM scene and meets Imam who is convinced he has found a “cure” to make gay people straight.

Salim’s Secret

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 2.57.19 PM

Salim’s Secret is a children’s book, written by Noor Ramadani. It’s about a young boy coming out to his parents. We absolutely fell in love with the illustrations. Noor was inspired to write the book after coming across a young boy from the “Human’s of New York” page. The young boy expressed fears about being homosexual. The picture amplified so much love and support for the child.

Noor is an English teacher and resides in Indonesia. Salim’s Secret is free for campaign use.
