In addition to participating in this week’s panel event, Matt was the subject and narrator of Lisa Bretherick’s “Lost in Memory” multimedia photo essay which is on display at the Free Word Centre for the duration of the exhibition.
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.
