My piece for +The Globe and Mail on #Canadian filmmaker +arshad khan's debut feature film #ABU. It opens in theatres in #Toronto, #Montreal and #Vancouver on April 13. It will also be available in a Hindu/Urdu version is some theatres in the #GTA.

“Once my own truth became clear to me – and there was a lot of indignity associated with the LGBTQI community, especially in the nineties, before the internet, before all this communication we can now have on social media – I started speaking my truth,” Khan says. Things got further complicated after 9/11, when his Muslim identity started becoming associated with terrorism. “All of a sudden, I realized in a stark way that media lies.”

In my latest segment for +CBC Radio One #TheNextChapter, I got to discuss cookbooks with host Shelagh Rogers. #Sweet by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh, Duchess Bake Shop by Giselle Courteau and Handmade, a cookbook featuring recipes from Sri Lanka's northern region.

We had a lot of fun, as you can tell by the laughter throughout the segment. And then we got to eat treats that I baked! One of the sweetest assignments ever. :)
