Irish Muslims Share Meal With LGBTQ Community

Irish Muslims Share Meal With LGBTQ Community

Be first to like this.

We love this bit of great news — during Ramadan (which was June 5th to July 5th this year), Muslims fast all day. After sunset, they can break their fast and this meal is called “Iftar”. In Ireland, the Irish Muslim Peace & Integration council invited people in the queer community to share Iftar. When Islam gets such a bad wrap, it’s always good to see true Muslims reaching out to make sure the fundamentalist idiots don’t get all the press. More stories like this please!

That and more in our look at the intersection between religion and the queer community.
