TikTok: 'I didn’t know other LGBT Muslims existed'

Shaz says she didn't know there were other people like her until she joined a social media platform where she now has 30,000 followers one year after joining.

TikTok is now her "safe space", she says.

Shaz and other LGBT Muslims have been using it to talk about their identity and connect a community, as BBC LGBT correspondent Ben Hunte reports.
