Born in Turkey, Harun worked as an events manager for over 10 years. He moved to the UK in 2015 to escape anti-LGBT+ hostility and discrimination.

He shared his experience publicly to raise awareness of the condition and to challenge the stigma around it. His story has been shared with the world by WHO and UN and included in many campaigns, podcasts and articles worldwide to raise awareness . Harun is committed to speaking publicly and sharing his life experiences to tackle stigma and raise awareness of sex positivity, HIV, Mpox and ADHD/mental health, as well as the stigma he faced as a gay man in Turkey.
