Muslim Drag Queens New UK Documentary

Muslim Drag Queens. A new UK documentary showing the hidden or little known world of the Muslim drag queen. The programme will be premiered Monday 24th August on Channel 4 (UK) 10pm.

“There is a whole community that is living in Britain which is hidden," says Asif. "Now is the time to come out. You’ve got to be big. You’ve got to be bold. And you’ve got to have balls of steel.”

Narrated by Sir Ian McKellen, the programme directed by Marcus Plowright delves into the world of Asif Quraishi who also goes by the name of Asifa Lahore

32-year-old Asif - who wears a burqa on stage to cause a reaction - is Britain’s first out and proud Muslim drag queen. Performing as his glamorous alter ego Asifa Lahore he has established himself as a leading figure within the Gaysian community, and as an activist for gay rights.
