"Today I am thankful for the heartache and what I have learned from my past”
Since publishing his personal journal, Take a Walk in My Big Indian Heels in early 2017, life has transformed for Lucky Roy Singh.
From emerging as a brave survivor of domestic violence, Lucky has become an inspiring role model for the LGBT Asian community in the UK.
Now the Manchester-born Brit-Asian will join DESIblitz for a special Q&A about his incredible journey as a gay Punjabi man.
Ahead of his talk at the Library of Birmingham on Saturday 21st October 2017, Lucky shares more about life post his book’s success.
How does it feel to be collaborating with DESIblitz for your event ‘All that Drag with Lucky Roy Singh’?
I think it’s an amazing opportunity that DESIblitz has given me.
And I am very grateful for the opportunity and to have another platform like this collaboration, to enhance my goal and spread awareness for the Gayasian Community as well as the issues raised in my book.
What can the audience look forward to on Saturday 21st October?
The audience can look forward to an in-depth realism of what is like to Take a Walk in My Big Indian Heels at the time of my marriage and what I have done and accomplished since.
Also my drag look 🙂
How has your life changed following the success of your first book, Take A Walk in My Big Indian Heels?
My life has changed in so many ways. Today I am thankful for the heartache and what I have learned from my past.
The success side of it would be, being noticed and my collaboration with many fashion designers, makeup artists, charities, LGBT community and events.
As well as progression in my career as a writer for future books.
You’re working on a second novel – when can we expect it? And what will it be about?
I can’t tell you the exact date of the release but there will be two books released.
One based on the aftermath of Take a Walk in My Big Indian Heels. And also one fiction based diary on the accounts of honour-based abuse.
You have become a role-model for the Brit-Asian LGBT community – did you ever think that your own story could have such an impact on others?
I never knew that the book would impact so many lives.
I did think that people would relate but not as much as the messages, love and support I have received.
“I feel privileged that my story has helped so many people.”
Fans of Lucky will be able to hear more about his life since Take a Walk in My Big Indian Heels as well as see him in drag for his sit-down conversation on Saturday 21st October 2017 at 6.30pm. Tickets are priced at £5.
