LIV­ING LIFE ON HER OWN TERMS

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - Lifestyle -

Noor Enayat is a les­bian Mus­lim who is fight­ing for the rights of the LGBT com­mu­nity. No won­der, big­ots hate her to the core. But that’s some­thing that both­ers her the least. “I don’t ad­ver­tise my iden­tity. But if peo­ple want to have opin­ions about me, they are most wel­come,” she says. The 32-year works closely with LGBT rights NGOs and Delhi Queer Pride Com­mit­tee. Her so­cial me­dia campaigns draw a lot of flak, and that makes her pledge to fight for equal rights stronger. “Peo­ple be­lieve that the LGBT have no right to ex­ist. I have be­come thick skinned and im­mune to ha­tred,” she says, as she car­ries on her bat­tle.
