Pegasus met Naz a few years ago when he asked permission for Naz’s clinic’s (Face Clinic London / Soho Skin) outside wall in Soho to be used as a canvas for Pegasus’ open air exhibition of his street art.
Shortly afterwards, a fabulously cheeky drawing of Marilyn Monroe, wearing American flag hot pants and sneakers, appeared outside the clinic, amazing staff and putting smiles on the faces of everyone who walked past. The beautiful artwork has since become a tourist attraction and much loved by the Soho community.
Pegasus has since been creating high-profile artworks for Kate Middleton, to celebrate the upcoming birth of the future King of England. And most recently, the inspiringly cheeky portrait of a young Queen Elizabeth to celebrate her becoming the longest reigning monarch of England. Rumour has it that the palace and the Queen love it.
Pegasus has very kindly offered to donate his latest masterpiece to the Naz and Matt Foundation, to be installed inside the clinic of Face Clinic London and Soho Skin – the place that he met Naz and they became friends.
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.
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!
Although this is not the main video, here’s a glimpse of right wing zealots who support Modi verbally attacking, harassing and pushing the members of Trikone.
The zealots took signs from Trikone members and ripped them up and some Modi supporters even got physical. Here’s a detailed account from Trikone’s co-chair Ali.
Section 377 was brought back into the law books December 2013, Modi has yet to acknowledge 377 or make any promises to the South Asian LGBTQ community that he will get the code off the law books for good.
These types of horrendous actions remind us all that homophobia and ignorance is still very much alive, even in the Bay Area.
Do you know these Modi supporters who kept harassing the Trikone members?
