Islam In America

As the 21st Century rolls along, American Muslims are dealing with ever more complicated questions regarding religious observance and personal behavior.

Here’s what one Muslima has to say: “Yes, it’s possible to be queer and Muslim”

“I don’t need to defend why I keep going back to my mosque, don’t need to name the spiritual highs and sense of connectedness I derive from this imperfect space, this imperfect community. This imperfect community that struggles with homophobia, but also with anti-blackness and misogyny, that is simultaneously battling surveillance and racial profiling, wars in the name of saving us from ourselves, motherlands being pounded by drones.”
