Speaking Gigs

At a time when the LGBTQ2+ community is not even acknowledged in her former religion, Hasina uses her voice to ignite change.

Hasina uses her own lived experience to talk about topics that no one talks about, but leave bisexual people of colour and LGBTQ2+ people of colour suffering in silence. Between October 2018 to June 2019, she’s given 7 speaking engagements of which 3 she was sought out directly by her clients.  From a captivating keynote address to an audience of 600 plus people to small intimate events of 30 people, she leaves a lasting impact on her audience.

LGBTQ2+ people of colour attending her talks are ecstatic to finally see someone like them who understands their complex struggles and is thriving in life. Heterosexuals attending her talks leave with a deeper understanding of what it means to be a bisexual person of colour in a world that teaches people to conform rather then being themselves.

Glynnis Lieb

Executive Director, Executive Director, Institute for Sexual Minority Studies & Services at the University of Alberta
Hasina has been able to articulate her experiences and respond to adversity with grace and strength. She is a role model for the many youth and adults who - like she once did - believed they are the only ones who are not heterosexual until they found validation and acceptance through their encounters with her. Hasina is filling a huge void for the LGBTQ2S+ community right now; she is giving voice and legitimacy to our Muslim members. Without her, so many people would continue existing in shame and loneliness. She is an essential voice in Alberta right now and we need many more to follow her lead. People's lives depend on it.
