Seyeda has been rejected by her family, abused and raped because she is gay – but is determined to be out and proud. The 42-year-old from Pakistan believes she would have been killed if she had not moved to the UK. “I can’t even imagine (what would have happened). I don’t think I would be alive there. “But there is no looking back. If people are harassing me, I need to make myself more strong.” Seyeda – whose parents died before they discovered her sexuality – was under pressure from an early age to marry a cousin.
