BBC Asian Network: Gay support group in memory of suicide doctor

A support group has been set up in memory of an Asian doctor who took his own life, days after telling his family he was gay.

Dr Naz Mahmood fell to his death from his London flat in July 2014.

Homosexuality remains taboo for many in the Asian community for religious and cultural reasons, with some gay men and women ostracised from their families.

His partner Matt Ogston has started the Naz And Matt Foundation to support Asian gay men and women, forced to hide their sexuality because of religion and culture.
