"80% of the men in the fashion industry are LGBTQ"

Renowned Pakistani fashion designer Maria B sparked a debate by claiming that 80% of men in Pakistan’s fashion industry identify as LGBTQ.

During a podcast, Maria B discussed the industry and was asked about transgender people.

She stated: “My limit had been reached, so I decided to speak out on this issue. I am in the fashion industry.

“We know from our very childhood, that 80% of the men in the fashion industry are LGBTQ. It did not used to be so openly discussed.

“They hid their identities. We knew that they were LGBTQ but we never said anything. Because this is something between Allah and man.”

She alleged that she had never spoken about LGBTQ or transgender people before as they were previously confined to their own identity or homes.

Maria added: “Whatever they were doing in their own homes, we could not interfere with it.”

Maria B asserted that she began addressing LGBTQ or transgender individuals when they started declaring on social media.

“Then they began talking about it on social media and began saying that this was permissible in Islam. This is not right.

“This has been discussed in the Quran 27 times, it is such a serious matter and people just ignore it like it is nothing.

“LGBTQ community has misrepresented the Quran and say that it was talking about non-consensual relations.

“If it was with consent then it is okay. This is when I got so angry, because they were misleading our children.”

Her statement generated a strong reaction from the public, with the majority appreciating Maria B’s willingness to address a sensitive topic.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time Maria B has spoken out against the LGBTQ community.

Previously, the designer demanded that the screening of Joyland be banned across Pakistan.

Maria B’s statements have sparked a wider conversation about the fashion industry and the LGBTQ community in Pakistan.

Zarnish Khan wrote: “I am so proud of this woman. Maria B, more power to you.”

A user said: “Maria is absolutely right. This is a serious concern that is engulfing our country too now.”

Another added: “This is spreading like a plague. The media is full of LGBTQ and our younger generation is getting greatly impacted by it.”

One noted: “She is right. I have never seen a normal straight man in the fashion industry.”
