April 23: LGBT Issues and the Muslim Community
Muslim and LGBT communities are often portrayed as holding incompatible worldviews, distinct and non-overlapping cultural identities and mutually exclusive political values and goals. But what is the reality in North America? Does this narrative of irreconcilable conflict depict the day-to-day reality of these communities? To what extent is this narrative used to obscure and deny the existence of shared worldviews, overlapping identities and common political goals? And does this narrative really serve Muslim or LGBT communities in North America or does it divide and conquer oppressed communities and help maintain the status quo?
