It’s time for the LGBT community in the U.S. to counter Islamaphobia, and spend energy working with LGBT Muslims to cope with the unique issues that face them. Learn about Islam and the LGBT Muslim experience so that all members of the LGBT community can be fully who they are, and enrich the LGBT community itself.
For More Information: Contact your local LGBTQ* center. Educate yourself on the current punishments and restraints of the LGBTQ* community outside of western culture. Educate yourself about Muslim lives and other cultures. Educate yourself about Islam and other religions. Research other cultures outside of your own or start a dialogue with other people of the LGBTQ* community.
