"Our LGBT

 I 

-Muslim Solidarity initiative seeks to encourage dialogue, unity and solidarity between the Muslim 

and 

LGBT

communities – to oppose all hate.

It has been prompted by requests from LGBT Muslims who have suffered abuse and harassment, from fellow Muslims. They’ve asked us to challenge homophobic prejudice within their communities.

As well as doing that, our aim is to reach out to bring the Muslim and LGBT communities together, to oppose the intolerance, discrimination and hate crime that both communities experience, including the threats from far-rightgroups like the EDL and from far-right Islamists who are sexist and anti-LGBTI. 

We also seek to challenge orthodox Islamic theology, which underpins the homophobia of many Muslims. It is based on a misreading the Quran, which does not condemn LGBTI people and contains no explicit prohibitions or punishments for same-sex acts.
