London Muslim has written about the taboo subject of Gay Muslims before a subject that still touches a raw nerve within the Muslim community and for that matter all communities.
Islam is clear and unequivocal on the subject of homosexuality with both the Quran and hadith condemning sexual relations between persons of the same Sex . However, unlike some fruitcakes like Ahmadinjad who bizarrely state homosexuality does not exist in Iran the reality is it does and we first need to acknowledge their existence before addressing attitudes towards gay Muslims.
The BBC have a very interesting article about the role Imams are playing in relation to the human aspect of Gay Muslim seeking their advice. While old attitudes die hard and there is without doubt prejudice in the community progressive Imams are in a better position to judge than me on Muslim lesbians wearing the Hijab or Gay couples not only seeking civil partnerships but some requesting a Nikah which is the Muslim marriage contract.
