One of first Muslim same-sex marriages takes place in UK

'We're going to show the whole world that you can be gay and Muslim'




A newly married couple are hoping “to show the whole world that you can be gay and Muslim” after their wedding in the West Midlands.

Jahed Choudhury and Sean Rogan married in Walsall, in one of the UK’s first same-sex marriages involving a Muslim partner.

Footage showed the couple dressed in traditional Bangladeshi attire to say their vows while surrounded by loved ones at the town’s registry office.

Mr Choudhury, 24, told the Express and Star he felt like the “black sheep” of his Bangladeshi Muslim family, being bullied at school, attacked by other Muslims and banned from his local mosque.

He said he attempted to change his sexual orientation and went on religious pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh but became suicidal and attempted to kill himself before meeting Mr Rogan.

They started living together in 2015 and Mr Choudhury proposed on his husband’s birthday last year.

Good for them in going public. May they have a long and happy marriage. cheers

The world re Homosexuals will finally be 'normal' when men and women who are gay no longer have to make announcements like this.

Congratulations to them both.

Now the next step is to have more acceptance for them from, the Muslim community.

Just as practicing homosexuals could be jailed here 50 years ago.
Thank God we are more civilised now....I don't hold much hope for some other countries though.
