Jasvir Singh is one of the most prominent Sikh voices in British public life. He is also gay – a fact that he has kept mostly private until now. It’s put him at odds with some members of his own community, but he says he now wants to speak up about his sexuality. Jasvir Singh lays out some photographs on the table in front of him and takes a deep breath. They are pictures of joyful moments from the day last summer when he married his husband, Nick. “I know that speaking about this is going to be highly controversial,” he says. “I’m sure there will be lots of people out there who will be upset, annoyed, even angry at me.
