What we're about
We conduct Ijtihad to find ways to practice and understand being Queer Muslim without focussing on oppression. Each Ijtihad meetup has a set topic and it’s own name. Our Zikr sessions are conducted with full permission from a Baba (sheikh) of the Bektashi Order in Istanbul and are inclusive of queer people and allies. We are building a spiritual community of critically consciously Muslim LGBTIQ+ people for whom Queerness and Islam are not something to be "reconciled" but which actually empower each other.
