In the next episode of Past/Present/Pride – a series of conversations that celebrates LGBTQ+ writers – psychologist Dr Paul D’Alton speaks to writer Adiba Jaigirdar.

Adiba Jaigirdar was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and has been living in Dublin from the age of ten. She has a BA in English and History from University College Dublin, and an MA in Postcolonial Studies from the University of Kent. She is the author of The Henna Wars, which was named a best book of the year by Kirkus, and was a semi-finalist for Best Young Adult Fiction in the Goodreads Choice Awards. Her sophomore novel, Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating  was released earlier this year.
