Join us for our Pride "in conversation" session with Mohsin Zaidi, barrister and author of A Dutiful Boy: A memoir of secrets, lies and family love.

Mohsin will explore the themes of his book and his journey of liberation, love and acceptance as a gay Muslim man working in the legal profession.

Mohsin Zaidi is an award-winning author, commentator and lawyer. His memoir, "A Dutiful Boy" was named Guardian, GQ and New Statesman Book of the Year. 

Mohsin has previously worked at a UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague and at the UK's Supreme Court. 

An advocate for LGBT rights, BAME representation and social mobility, Mohsin sits on the board of Stonewall and is listed by The Financial Times as a top future LGBT leader. 

In 2017 he was winner of a national writing competition run by Penguin Random House to find new writers. The Guardian says it is 'a profound meditation on the power of the human heart to transcend the contradictions of diverse cultures and create something new...utterly compelling...providing a lesson of acceptance for us all, and for the future of our multicultural society'. Before publishing 'A Dutiful Boy', he co-authored a book on the crime of insider dealing. 

The first person from his school to go to Oxford University, Mohsin subsequently qualified as a lawyer at Freshfields and is now a management consultant at advisory firm Hakluyt.

Mohsin appears as a commentator on Sky News and has previously written for CNN Style, Bustle, Mr Porter and Newsweek. The Financial Times listed him as a top future LGBT leader and Attitude magazine has named him a trailblazer changing the world today.
