Earlier, opening up about his sexual identity, Salman Toor had told The New Yorker in 2022 that he tried telling his parents that he was gay when he was 15. “They didn’t accept that,” he told the publication but added that they eventually came to terms with his sexuality ‘more with tolerance than with understanding.’
A same-sex wedding is not legal in Pakistan.
