One-hundred LGBTQ Muslims gathered for a jummah prayer for Palestine in front of the Stonewall National Monument on Friday to demonstrate that there is “no pride in genocide.” “Queer Muslim New Yorkers are rising up in solidarity with Palestinians, and through a queer Muslim-led interfaith prayer, they will stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people who are facing genocide, starvation, and ethnic cleansing at the hands of the Israeli government backed by the United States,” organizers said in a statement. LGBTQ activists raised colorful signs reading “ceasefire now” and “free Palestine” as dozens of people gathered on prayer mats outside of the first national monument dedicated to LGBTQ rights in the country. The action, endorsed by seven LGBTQ and Palestinian rights groups, was a resounding call for a permanent ceasefire from faith communities.
