Jiwandeep Kohli, a Sikh, bisexual baker and brain scientist, has gone viral on Twitter after posting a picture of his rainbow turban.
Kohli posted the photo to mark the beginning of Pride month and it currently (as of June 3) has over 2,000 retweets and 16,000 likes.
He wrote on Twitter: “I’m proud to be a bisexual bearded baking brain scientist. I feel fortunate to be able to express all these aspects of my identity, and will continue to work toward ensuring the same freedom for others.”
Kohli, who lives in San Diego, said he made the turban himself but that he has had “a decade or so of practice.”
In another tweet he wrote: “One of my normal black turbans that I supplemented with strips of other colours in exactly the right places. Took about an hour of tying, untying, and safety pinning, but totally worth it!”
