An actress who plays a gay Muslim on Coronation Street has said that fans often tell her they were subjected to gay ‘cure’ therapy. Bhavna Limbachia plays nurse Rana Nazir on the long-running ITV show, making history as the first female Muslim character to have a same-sex relationship in a UK soap. Speaking to the Daily Record, the actress revealed that fans in the Muslim community often recall experiences of gay ‘cure’ therapy. She said of taking the part: “I felt the need to go off and educate myself because I’m not gay, I didn’t really know much about the LGBT community. I wanted to make sure I got it right.”
