A GAY Sikh man was forced to dress as a woman on his wedding day because his in-laws didn't want guests to know he was a man. Roy Singh, from Manchester, had to wear high heels, a wig and make up when he wed his husband and had to change his name on the day to "Lucky". The year-old met his husband when he was just 18 and moved to London to live in his family home, The Mirror reports.
Those words were casually tossed at me by a pretty girl I was trying — and failing — to flirt with at a college party. I looked down at my outfit: a floral backless dress, red high heels, and my long brown hair worn down. My journey to my bisexual identity was a quiet one, filled with introspection and fanfiction.
First I came out to myself, then to my friends. I have, however, decided not to let fear rule my life — although not coming out to your homophobic family is just as valid. She wanted to be a police officer, and all the men felt intimidated by her.
R egulating how women dress, both in and out of the workplace, is nothing new. The strict — and mandatory — codes were designed to remind women of their place in Greek society. In the ensuing millennia, not much has changed.
Roy was so lovestruck he accepted the conditions and moved into their house in London. Later he made a move and we kissed. The pair started dating in secret as Roy was afraid his own Sikh family would disown him if they found out.
Are you curious why Brad Pitt, to promote his new film, dyed his crew cut so blond that even his hairdresser is scratching his head? Well, how about that guy you see in the locker room, changing out of his Prada lace-ups, Hugo Boss flat-front pants and Paul Smith dress shirt and cuff links into a muscle T-shirt and Adidas soccer shorts. Does he wear that wedding ring because he was married in New York -- or in Massachusetts? Or those two something guys walking in the park in pastel oxford-cloth shirts and khakis, collars turned up and cuffs rolled, one of them pushing a stroller?
Roy Singh, 29, claimed his mother and father in-law struggled to accept that their son was gay and would only allow him to marry if Roy wore a wig and heels. He was so in love with his then boyfriend — who he met when he was just 18 — that he agreed to his in-laws demands and moved down to London to live with them. But that quickly changed when his future mother-in-law got in touch for the first time and they arranged to meet.
