Behind The Burqa: The Story Of The U.K.’s First Muslim Drag Queen
Asifa Lahore, the U.K.’s first Muslim drag queen, rose to infamy in 2014 after the BBC censored her while she spoke about homosexuality and Islam. This surprising censorship, paired with Asifa’s outspokenness, has helped this gender fluid activist reach a larger audience to share her beautiful story.
In a thought-provoking new video lecture, Asifa discusses her amazing journey about how she has become more than just a “boy in a dress.” From television appearances to death threats, watch the video below to enjoy the highly personal talk.
By sharing her story, Asifa is helping to lead an important dialogue that we hope can bring more awareness to the conflicts of sexuality and religion.
