*very quiet voice* queer spaces need to be safe for people of faith too
I don’t think about this enough. How do I make spaces more inclusive to people of faith.
By not talking about how silly and gross religion is and by not comparing sexuality to other things forbidden in the Old Testament like shrimp, etc.
Also by insulting the laws of Leviticus saying they are “impossible to live by haha so funny shrimp is banned” is excluding lgbtqia+ Jewish people bc Jewish ppl follow those laws and for the most part are pretty good with including lgbtqia+. Obviously not all Jewish ppl/organizations/communities are good with this but they are for the most part
and by not associating monotheism with patriarchy, by acnowledging that god is not attributed a gender in islam, by educating yourself about and refuting the notion that islam is patriarchal, by not forcing lgbt muslims to explain “how that works” or how they “reconcile their faith” with xyz thing, by fostering an environment where casual sex and drug/alcohol use aren’t encouraged or considered to be social necessities, and by giving lgbt muslims the space to sort out theological quandries that the community hasn’t resolved yet.
