Same-sex marriage did a UK living Bangladeshi man



Lastnewsbd, 12th July, Dhaka: Jahed Choudhury, 24, grew up feeling ostracised by the Muslim community because he was gay and was even sent on a religious pilgrimage to change his sexual orientation. The “bullying” pushed Jahed to try and take his own life but Sean Rogan, 19, found him crying on a town bench and the newlyweds have not looked back since. They started living together in 2015 and Mr Choudhury proposed on his husband’s birthday last year. Footage showed the couple dressed in traditional Bangladeshi attire to say their vows while surrounded by loved ones at the town’s registry office. A Muslim man who tried to kill himself after being attacked over his sexuality is believed to have become the first of his faith in the UK to wed in a same-sex marriage.

Choudhury, said he felt like the “black sheep” of his Bangladeshi Muslim family, being bullied at school, attacked by other Muslims and banned from his local mosque. Choudhury’s mother, sister, older brother and cousin attended the wedding, as did Rogan’s mother, two sisters and older brother.  “My mum has always been so supportive. Without her I would not be here today,” Choudhury said. He also described the terrible phases he experienced before meeting Rogan. “I stood out like a sore thumb I never liked football; I preferred watching fashion shows on TV. I remember feeling trapped.”  “It went all over school, people would spit on me, empty the rubbish bins on me, call me pig and the Muslim people would shout ‘haram’ which is a very nasty insult in my language.”
