Why choose Hasina Juma Consulting?
Power of lived experience
My work focuses on the gaps in knowledge I experienced while hiding my own sexual orientation. From hiding my sexual orientation for a decade to leaving the religion I grew up in for 34 years or tackling subtle aggressions while working on a journey to marriage, I cover it all.
Bridging the gap of understanding between LGBTQ2+ and cisgendered people of colour folks (a.k.a. heterosexuals) through catered resources, tools and strategies.
Who We are
Making it easier for others to accept who they are
Hasina is a Canadian advocate for LGBTQ2+ people of colour and their families. Her story is one of resilience as Hasina boldly embraced her bisexuality by navigating conflicts in identity where she is starting to be embraced in Canadian society, perceived as committing a sin in the Ismaili Muslim religion, invisible in the South Asian community while still gaining credibility as a bisexual in the LGBTQ2+ community.
At a time when the LGBTQ2+ community is not even acknowledged in her former religion and ethnic community, she speaks up through her ground breaking digital platform (educational website, speaking engagements, podcast interviews and media coverage), where she provides resources, support and tools to bring awareness about the complexities of embracing who you are when you have multiple conflicting identities.
Her work resonates with a broad audience who finds her work honest, insightful and thought-provoking. LGBTQ2+ people of colour, who are often in hiding their sexual orientation, allow themselves to be seen for the first time while heterosexuals gain new perspectives which leads to more openness and understanding.
Hasina’s advocacy work has not only led to various speaking engagements, but also features in newspapers, magazines and podcasts series with a global reach.
