LGBTQ Muslims are already a part of your world. We have communities and lives of our own, and in the ever-expanding multicultural world we live in it is becoming more necessary than ever to learn how to be better for our global community. SO: Speak out! Get on social media and say nice things about LGBTQ Muslims. Reach out to a friend and ask how you can support her this Ramadan.
Let’s let this summer be a time where when can uplift and learn from one another. I’m the Executive Director of Masjid al-Rabia — a women-centered, LGBTQIA+-affirming mosque in Chicago. Together with our Director of Spiritual Education Zaynab Shahar, I put together a list of DOs and DON’Ts to share so you can be a better ally to your Muslim siblings this Summer.
