Six metres of pavement : a novel by Farzana Doctor( Book )

Ismail Boxwala made the worst mistake of his life one summer morning twenty years ago: he forgot his baby daughter in the back seat of his car. After his daughter's tragic death, he struggles to continue living. A divorce, years of heavy drinking, and sex with strangers only leave him more alone and isolated. But Ismail's story begins to change after he reluctantly befriends two women: Fatima, a young queer activist kicked out of her parents' home; and Celia, his grieving Portuguese-Canadian neighbour who lives just six metres away. A slow-simmering romance develops between Ismail and Celia. Meanwhile, dangers lead Fatima to his doorstep. Each makes complicated demands of him, ones he is uncertain he can meet

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and transsexual (LGBT) people have specific life factors that relate to substance use, factors that include the "coming out" process, societal oppression, loss of family support, and the predominance of bars in LGBT communities. To help therapists explore these concerns with clients, the manual includes interview items that can be used to facilitate discussion during assessment or early in treatment planning. These are: an assessment questionnaire to be used with a standard substance use (or other service) assessment; a guide to help therapists use the assessment instrument; and a glossary of concepts and terms
All inclusive by Farzana Doctor( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What's it like when everyone's dream vacation is your job? Ameera works at a Mexican all-inclusive resort, where every day is paradise -- if "paradise" means endless paperwork, quotas to meet, and entitled tourists. But it's not all bad. Ameera's pastime of choice is the swingers' scene, and the resort is the perfect place to hook up with like-minded couples without the hassle of ever having to see them again. Despite Ameera's best efforts to keep her sideline a secret, someone is spreading scandalous rumours about her around the resort, and her job might be at stake. Meanwhile, she's being plagued by her other secret, the big unknown of her existence: the identity of her father and why he disappeared. Unbeknownst to Ameera, her father, Azeez, is looking for her, and they both must come to terms with the reason why he abandoned her. All inclusive blurs the lines between the real world and paradise, life and death, and reminds us that love is neither easily lost nor found
