I’m a multi-award winning human rights campaigner whose filmmaking was born from a horrific tragedy that destroyed almost everything and took the life of my beloved fiancé Naz.
Searching for hope from the sadness of losing my soulmate, my goal is to use the pain I feel every day to make factual films that will help take audiences on a journey of learning, emotion and understanding. I hope to one day inspire the change that Naz dreamed of.
My God, I’m Queer
Official synopsis: Is it ‘okay to be gay and Muslim’? A bereaved fiancé goes on a deeply personal journey to prevent the tragedy from ever happening again.
This is my first documentary, initially produced for a special memorial event I organised in memory of my darling Naz five years after he left this earth.
After the screening we received such a positive response to the film so we decided to introduce more contributors and submit the documentary to international film festivals. The film was later screened in the UK, Canada and India.
I hope the film creates a positive, uplifting message that will inspire our audience to be themselves, find greater acceptance and ultimately prevent another tragedy from happening again.
