Warwickshire Pride festival line-up – Asifa Lahore

Here is another performer announcement…


If you’ve been to Warwickshire Pride before, you will have experienced the iconic Asifa Lahore on our stage, hosting and performing.

Asifa Lahore is the UK’s first out Muslim drag queen, pushing the boundaries of what it means to be LGBT, South Asian and Muslim. Asifa featured in Channel 4’s groundbreaking documentary Muslim Drag Queens in 2015. Narrated by Sir Ian McKellen, it drew an audience of 1.1 million viewers. That same year, she received the Attitude Magazine Pride Award for activism and increasing visibility of the ‘Gaysian’ community and also judged the Independent’s Rainbow List.

Asifa is also passionate about disability rights. She is severely sighted and suffers from Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare genetic eye disease which causes progressive sight loss.

Asifa continues to promote and DJ at London’s top Gaysian club nights, Club Kali and Disco Rani.

Warwickshire Pride returns to the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa on Saturday 17th August.
