Ramadan can be a lonely time for LGBT Muslims. With family and community right at the heart of Ramadan , it can be a difficult month for LGBTQ+ Muslims cut off by those around them because of their identity. The belief that one must choose between faith and sexuality has led many LGBT Muslims to feel ostracised during the holy month. But over the years, LGBTQ+ Muslims have built their own webs of support for those whose sexuality has put them at odds with their religion. There are a number of groups and organisations working across the country to support and empower young queer Muslims. We’ve put together a list of resources you can use if you need someone to talk to this Ramadan.
