Proud Muslim Father Accepts his Gay Son

Sameer came out to his Muslim family four years ago. They fully accept him and the fact that he is gay. They understand and accept that he was born that way.

This interview was filmed to coincide with Naz and Matt Foundation’s #OutAndProudParentsDay and broadcast by the BBC on 30th July 2019, exactly five years to the day after my beautiful fiancé Naz sadly took his own life. This tragedy took place just two days after Naz was confronted about his sexuality by his deeply religious parents for the first time.

Now, more than ever, we need more proud parents to come out to their community, to come out their family… and tell the world how proud they are of their LGBTQI+ children.

Please donate to support our Foundation’s work removing the barriers that prevent religious and culturally conservative parents from accepting their LGBTQI+ children
