Jahed Choudhury, aged 24 tied the knot with Sean Rogan, 19 in a civil ceremony at Walsall registry office. Their love story is very interesting as the couple first met when Choudhury was crying on a bench. Mosque rejected him after they had found that he is a gay.
According to the Express and Star, Choudhury said: “I’d not long overdosed and I was crying on a bench and Sean came over and asked if I was okay. He gave me hope at one of my lowest points and he’s stood by me all the way.”
He recalled his childhood and added: “I stood out like a sore thumb. I never liked football, I preferred watching fashion shows on TV. I remember feeling trapped.”
People insulted him very badly, call him a pig and even empty the rubbish bins on him.
Choudhury even tried to kill himself but fortunately met Sean. Telling about his love story, Choudhury said: “I proposed on Sean’s birthday last June. We’re going to have a big party in Darlaston afterwards and go to Spain for a week on holiday.”
He further emotionally added: “I want to say to all people going through the same thing that’s it’s okay, we’re going to show the whole world that you can be gay and Muslim.”
