1. Hello. We have created a campaign on twitter under the hash tag SolidarityWithEgyptLgbt to stand against discrimination targeted towards the LGBTQ+ community, specifically when a video of Egypt's first public same-sex marriage prompted authorities to arrest several men who were involved in the ceremony. We are hoping that you could spread this to the rest of your followers and join us on twitter to support us and make our voices louder.

    no problem

    thanks for letting me know! 

  2. I love your blog so much 😭😭 thank u

    you’re welcome!

    Bill 44 requires that school boards give parents written notice when controversial topics are going to be covered in the curriculum. Parents also have the right to remove their children from any instruction relating to sexuality, sexual orientation or religion.

    In addition, in April of this year, Alberta MLAs voted down motion 503, which urged the government to introduce legislation requiring school boards to “support students who want to lead and establish gay-straight alliance (GSA) activities and organizations.”

    My LGBTQ students in Edmonton are fortunate they have InQueeries at MacEwan University and Outreach at the University of Alberta, and that they have the safe space I offer them regardless of faith, gender expression or sexual orientation.

    But is that enough when many of our political leaders imperil the lives of our LGBTQ children for mere votes and exclusionary values?

    In Islam, Allah bestows human beings with dignity to live in mawadda — love and affection — a right that fellow humans cannot usurp. The Prophet (upon whom be peace) taught us “Do no harm and accept no harm.”

    Gay-straight alliances save lives and prevent harm. In the hallowed name of Allah and the Prophet we are obliged to stand for GSAs. As elders, it is our duty to comfort the vulnerable, to have zero tolerance for bullying in any and all of its ugly forms.

About me

A Tumblr by & for Queer Muslims - celebrating our dual identities.

This is not a space for debate or where we will feel compelled to justify our existence. This is a place for us to express ourselves without fear, to share resources, and to connect with other queer Muslims.

Asks should keep the above in mind. We reserve the right to ignore asks, no matter how "polite", that deviate from our mission of a positive space for us. Negativity, "nasiha", name-calling, takfiring, questioning of our level of Islamic knowledge, and demands for us to justify our existence will NOT be published here or responded to. If people have personal questions/comments for the moderators that step outside the positive & affirming mission of this blog, they should go to our personal Tumblrs (though we make no promises that we will entertain you there either!)
