Muslim drag queen fears backlash over Channel 4 film about Britain’s hidden ‘Gaysian’ scene

A practising Muslim who also performs as a drag queen has said he fears a backlash following a Channel 4 documentary on Britain’s hidden ‘Gaysian’ scene.

The documentary, Muslim Drag Queens, stars Asif Quaraishi, 33, from London, a Muslim who performs in drag as Asifa Lahore in cabaret bars across the capital.

He is calling for extra support from the government for ‘hidden’ gay Asians living in Britain who are often ostracised by their communities.
