I was asked to do a two hour talk about Naz and myself, our relationship, and the social issues surrounding our 13 year relationship that sadly led to the Naz and Matt Foundation having to be formed.
Naz and Matt Foundation was set up to tackle homophobia triggered by religion and to help parents accept their children.
In July 2014, after a 13 year relationship Matt’s fiancé, Naz, sadly ended his life two days after his religious family confronted him about his sexuality.
Matt will speak about his very personal story and explore the work of the Foundation. Those with, or without faith, are encouraged to attend this non-judgmental space to share, learn and connect.
This is a free event.

Matt set up the Naz and Matt Foundation in memory of his soulmate and fiancé, Naz, who passed away two days after being confronted about his sexuality by his religious parents. It was the first time that they knew their son was gay, in a relationship with Matt for 13 years and that they were planning to get married.
