Gay Sikh man faced threats from family after coming out

A Sikh man has been speaking about the abuse he received from relatives after telling them he is gay.

Manjinder Singh Sidhu, 30, from Birmingham, said he had been threatened with a "beating" after confronting a family member about his behaviour towards him.

Figures from West Midlands Police show recorded honour crimes against men have risen from three in 2014 to 13 in 2016.

Mr Sidhu has now produced a video and book with his mother to help other families going through similar experiences.
