Born to Muslim parents from Bangladeshi with three siblings, the bride groom at the wedding recalled how efforts made to change his sexual orientation were futile.

He said he changed his social circle, took medication and even went on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh so as to become a heterosexual person but to no avail.

“I never liked football, I preferred watching fashion shows on TV. I remember feeling trapped…It went all over school, people would spit on me, empty the rubbish bins on me, call me pig and the Muslim people would shout “harum” – which is a very nasty insult in my language,” he narrated.
