Recently, US-based clinical psychologist Jiwandeep Kohli became a viral sensation, when he shared a photo of his rainbow turban - which he had worn to celebrate the pride month as a proud bisexual.
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
The post, that was liked over 100k times, also attracted the attention of former US President Barack Obama, who appreciated both, his gesture and his stylish turban.
You've got a lot to be proud of, Jiwandeep. Thanks for everything you do to make this country a little more equal. Turban looks great, by the way. Happy Pride Month, everybody! https://t.co/SO7mgnOkgl— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) June 4, 2019
Naturally, Kohli was ecstatic at the response and took to Twitter to thank him for his kind words.
