First Ever Gay Muslim Wedding Takes Place In U.K (Photos)
 The first ever gay muslim wedding has taken place as the happy grooms, Jahed Choudhury and Sean Rogan, who have been dating for 2 years, tied the knot while putting on a traditional golden
Sherwanis in a civil ceremony at Walsall registry office.

Their relationship came by when Sean met Choudhury crying on a bench in Darlaston and according to Choudhury, Sean has stood by him since then.

He told express and Star;

“I’d not long overdosed and I was crying on a bench and Sean came over and asked if I was okay.”

However, Choudhury admitted the fact that being an openly gay muslim made him feel like something of a 'black sheep' and he felt like he was being trapped between his sexuality and his faith.

Although his family were not present at the ceremony but Choudhury believes the wedding is a significant progress for the muslim and LGBT communities alike.

 In his words:

“My family doesn’t want to come on the day, they just don’t want to see it, it’s too embarrassing for them.” Choudhury says that some of his family members dismiss his sexuality and happy relationship with Sean as a ‘disease’ or a phase.I want to say to all people going through the same thing that’s it’s okay – we’re going to show the whole world that you can be gay and Muslim.”
