Watch or re-watch queer Muslim activist and opinion maker Dino Suhonic's speech from this year's European Equality Gala
"Queer Muslim activists across Europe are bridging the gap between LGBTI and Muslim communities. We are raising concerns about the multiple discrimination we face. Despite the fact our narratives are used to widen that gap."
We would like to invite you to our open events in Amsterdam about 'Queer Women of Color and Faith' and 'Queer Newcomers in Europe'. An initiative of the European Queer Muslim Network. Hosted by Maruf.
This event is open and for free. Feel free to invite your friends and colleagues. More info is coming soon.

Afgelopen zaterdag 12 oktober vond in Amsterdam de filmpremière van de documentaire Fitrah plaats. Amina Wadud, een van de meest prominente personen op het gebied van islamitisch feminisme, en Muhsin Hendricks, beter bekend als de eerste openlijk homoseksuele imam in de wereld, waren de eregasten van de avond. De filmpresentatie vond plaats in het kader van MarufMessages, een initiatief van stichting Maruf om informatie uit te wisselen in de vorm van een lezingenreeks over de islam, mensenrechten en seksuele diversiteit.
