HASINA JUMA

 At a time when the LGBTQ2+ community is not even acknowledged in her former religion (Ismaili Muslim) and is gaining credibility in her ethnic community (South Asian), she uses her voice to ignite bold change.

Her ultimate goal is helping keep families together by creating common understanding. She bridges the gap  by:  giving legitimacy to LGBTQ2+ people of colour by sharing her lived experience;  and providing knowledge to heterosexuals who don’t understand their LGBTQ2+ loved ones experiences and wish to create a deeper connection.

Her followers find her work as honest, insightful, inspiring and thought-provoking! Image by Carmen Bachez.
