"What It’s Like to Grow Up as a Closeted Gay Extremist Muslim in East London
Sohail Ahmed, as told to Thomas Hornall, Vice, What It’s Like to Grow Up as a Closeted Gay Extremist Muslim in East London, 8 Oct 2015, "Sohail Ahmed, 23, was raised in a hardline Islamist household in London's East End. He was taught to despise his country of birth, all of Western culture and everyone who wasn't Muslim. Conversely, he was always gay and, at heart, a humanist, struggling for years with the intractable problem of holding the chauvinistic views of radical Islam, which were directly opposed to his nature."
