Krishna Omkar was born and brought up in Delhi, and lives and works in London as a corporate lawyer. He is actively involved in human rights advocacy, has been named by the Financial Times as a Future Leader in 2015 and 2016, and by Attitude in its inaugural eligible bachelors list. He is currently working with Bollywood figures on a project for LGBT+ rights in India.

About Winq

The latest issue of the newly relaunched Winq magazine features an exclusive interview with Sherlock star Andrew Scott on his electrifying Hamlet and exploring his own inner darkness. There are also interviews with arist Grayson Perry and motorsport’s only gay racing driver, Danny Watts. We travel to Thailand and Rotterdam, get the background on the horrific abuse in Chechnya and ask if the pink pound can advance equality around the developing world. Packed with insightful commentary from a newly expanded panel of columnists, Winq is the journal for gay men by Attitude.
