SEASON 2 | EPISODE 16  
SHARAN DHALIWAL
ON BURNT ROTI AND MIDDLESEX PRIDE 🅴




For their penultimate episode of the month, they speak with Sharan Dhaliwal, founder of Burnt Roti, (the UK's leading South Asian magazine), Director of Middlesex Pride, and creator of Oh Queer Cupid. They chat about everything from creating an inclusive space for your community, body hair representation, Sharan's upcoming book, Burning My Roti, and Instagram's treatment of queer people of colour on their app.

Matthew also discusses the recent spike in homophobic hate crimes in Liverpool and reaffirms why being an LGBTQ+ ally is much more than sharing an infographic on Instagram.
