The Love That Knows Much Shame

Can you be both LGBT and South Asian in Britain today?

The Love That Knows Much Shame is a panel discussion on being LGBT and South Asian in Britain today, 

takingplace  as part of the fifth anniversary of Southbank Centre’s Alchemy festival (15 -26 May), produced in partnership with Bobby Tiwana of Safar (Beneath the Surface).

The arrival of Same Sex Marriage legislation was a catalyst for the panel discussion. LGB Theatre Producer and Cultural Activist Bobby Tiwana says, “On the one hand we’ve had this landmark milestone in equality for gay men and women, and on the other we’ve still the situation where most South Asians still feel unable to come out to their parents and families. As a South Asian gay man I understand the status quo and feel compelled to start a discussion about it”

FFLAG is delighted to have been invited to be part of this important event and we are so pleased that Aashi Gahlot will be representing FFLAG on the discussion panel. Aashi is the founder of SHOR ( and we are currently working together to produce some of FFLAG’s resources in Hindi.

Panel Discussion 23 May, 6pm: Free Event. Southbank Centre, London SE1 8XX
