Fighting race, religion and class to find acceptance as a gay Muslim man in modern Britain

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the Sky News YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

Mohsin Zaidi grew up in a devout Muslim community in a deprived area of East London.

Struggling with his sexuality, he felt isolated from his family, but found a love for education and became the first person from his school to go to Oxford University.

He went on to work at the UN and the UK’s Supreme Court, and today is a criminal barrister in one of the country’s top chambers, often working on high profile cases.

He is also an advocate of LGBT rights and BAME representation, and has a new book telling his story: ‘A Dutiful Boy: A Memoir of a Gay Muslim’s Journey to Acceptance’.
