Jahed (Jay) Choudhury grew up feeling lonely and ostracised. Knowing he was gay and being a practising Muslim from a Bangladeshi family made his teenage years impossible. He even went on a religious pilgrimage to try and change his sexual orientation.
A lifetime of bullying and suppressing his sexuality eventually led Jay to attempt to take his own life.
The following day a kind stranger found him crying on a bench and it was that moment that would change his life. That stranger was Sean Rogan, now Sean Choudhury, since they married three weeks ago. The wedding, held in a registry office, was thought to the first Muslim gay wedding in the UK.
