Featuring on the LGBTQI+ pocast: Khakan Qureshi – Founder of Birmingham South Asians LGBT
The LGBTQI+ Podcast
Khakan joined us on Leading Communities, the LGBTQI+ podcast edition. Firstly, who is Khakan? Khakan founded Birmingham South Asians LGBT – Finding A Voice. This voluntary led, social support group is for South Asian men and women aged 18+.
Campaigner, activist, writer and speaker, Khakan has been a visible force in the recent Anderton Park School protests. Khakan is a problem solver and therefore has organised discussions between protestors and the LGBT community. So we invited him onto the podcast find out his perspective.
In addition to this Khakan has completed the Stonewall LGBT School Role Model and Diversity Role Model programme.
He has been shortlisted for several LGBT awards. And he organised the first South Asians LGBT Conference 2018 in Birmingham. Finally, and most relevant to our discussion, he organised the first LGBTIQ+ Intersectionality and Islam Conference.
