A first-of-its-kind Pride event for LGBTQ+ Muslims is happening this weekend. Organised by charity Imaan LGBTQI+, Muslim Pride 2024 is set to take place at Queen Mary, University of London, on Saturday (22 June) and hundreds of people are expected to attend the full-day “celebration of queer Muslim culture, activism and history”. The event was originally scheduled for 2020 but was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The day will begin with a panel discussion featuring scholars and activists, including Dr Sanah Ahsan, Hafsa Qureshi, Imam Muhsin Hendricks and Dr Amina Wadud. There will also be workshops that focus on topics from Islamic feminism to the joys and challenges of being out as a Muslim, and entertainment from members of the community.
