Mufseen has made the decision to quit family life, as he felt the toxic relationship was more harmful than having no relationship:
Mufseen came out to his family three years ago and says his relationship with his parents and siblings since then has been "strained" and "strange".
Mufseen lives in London, works in finance and is an LGBT activist, but feels forced to act differently around his parents in Brighton than he does his friends.
He has been financially independent from his family since moving to London.
"Every time I go to my family it feels like I'm reduced to being a closeted kid again for a few days," he says.
"That's a really damaging thing for me because it really affects my self-confidence."
As LGBTQ+ people our relationships with our families can be complicated. Though some of us are blessed with understanding and supportive relatives, lots of us aren't. The question is, when is it the right decision? And if you have to make the leap, how can we ensure we're receiving love, support, and sense of belonging?
I was kicked out of my house at age 17 for being gay and muslim so I fully understand. Where my family have tried to bring me back into the family I told them I want nothing to do with them. If they couldn't love me back then, they don't deserve me now.
I have so many issues with my family. I would love to be able to do what Mufseen did but I don't think I can. I allow my family to belittle me and make me feel I'm bad for who I am. Us muslims have a battle our whole entire life.
