One Twitter user decided to share a post to support visibility of the LGBTQ+ community and their right to own their identity openly and proudly.
Jiwandeep Kohli, a US-based clinical psychologist in training and a proud bisexual, donned a rainbow-coloured turban on the internet.
I’m proud to be a bisexual bearded baking brain scientist. I feel fortunate to be able to express all these aspects of my identity, and will continue to work toward ensuring the same freedom for others. #PrideMonth #PrideTurban #LoveIsLove pic.twitter.com/SVhc0iwDF0— Jiwandeep Kohli (@jiwandeepkohli) June 1, 2019
I’m proud to be a bisexual… I feel fortunate to be able to express all these aspects of my identity, and will continue to work toward ensuring the same freedom for others.
The post, existing on the intersections of the LGBTQ+ community and of religion, is truly precious.
He used one of his usual black turbans and supplemented it with strips of the colours of the rainbow. Add one hour of tying, untying, and safety pinning in the mix; and voila, you have an absolutely adorable Pride turban.
Thank you! It’s sort of both. One of my normal black turbans that I supplemented with strips of other colors in exactly the right places. Took about an hour of tying, untying, and safety pinning, but totally worth it!— Jiwandeep Kohli (@jiwandeepkohli) June 1, 2019
Netizens can’t stop hearting this rainbow-turban.
That is the absolute best dastaar EVER. Happy Pride, Jiwandeep. 🤗😊— Xas (@_Xas_) June 2, 2019
