About the Book
"It feels so strange to not tell your parents; as if you are hiding something. Theoretically, sexuality should be one part of a person; not their whole personality. If you take that part and put it aside, you should be fine. Unfortunately, that's not how it works. It's like living a dual life."
Through the combination of powerful imagery and quoted from participants, Sonalle delves into the complexities of how ethnic minority lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people reveal their sexual orientation for the first time. This book includes advice for people thinking about coming out.
Foreword by Dr Rob Berkeley, Runnymede Trust.

‘Born to Indian Immigrants & forced to conform to the traditional social norms, Sonalle broke free in search of adventure & self discovery. She travelled for almost ten years through Europe, Asia & Latin America observing & participating in the kaleidoscope of cultures & sights encountered. Sonalle thirsts for a deeper knowledge & understanding of universal life & society. Now driven by the desire to transform the journey of others, she is progressing, through her own unique narrative, to communicate what is frequently left unsaid; to deliver an insight into that detail we may not always perceive, or that we sometimes try to ignore.'
