Vitiligo Advocate , UK

Dr. Abhishek Sengupta

Kirpal Bhogal is a seasoned professional with a background in government, law enforcement, and content protection against piracy. He started his Instagram account to raise awareness about Vitiligo. He's been able to be creative, show off what makes him unique and different, and dispel prevalent misconceptions about vitiligo owing to this social outlet.

Many individuals assume, for example, that vitiligo is contagious or that it is cancer. In some parts of India, including his own ancestral homeland, the stigma is so severe that marriages are called off because families have learned of the prospective spouse's ailment and are filled with misguided worries. His Instagram is dedicated to dispelling these myths and encouraging other "vitiligans" to flaunt their skin with pride.
