There's a stereotype of what being Muslim looks like in certain communities that usually involves wearing a hijab, praying daily, fasting during Ramadan and being cisgender and straight. When Muslims fall outside these boundaries, criticism is not uncommon, especially for an LGBTQ member of the community.

As the holy month of Ramadan comes to an end and Muslims around the world are gearing up to celebrate Eid al-Fitr by gathering and feasting with family, friends and neighbors, LGBTQ Muslims say they often feel left out, ostracized or forgotten.

  1. this guy is fooling himself ,the way he thinks and expresses his ideas is really typical of lgbtq brainwashing, shallow arguments and only following the desires of the devil which he should avoid!
    instead of claiming to be a Muslim, he actually has left the teachings he should have adhered to just because he indulged in sexual desires like an animal!
    there are billions of Muslims in this world who behave well and righteously, and this kind of human is not worthy of being talked about and published by the media!!
    I hope he gets God’s guidance

  2. All Abrahamic religions agree that what they are spouting is haram, sinful, ludicrous acts. Allah, please guide the misguided.
