Dear ‘saviors’ of Muslim LGBTQI
  • "We" are not monolithic: do not all walk the same path and live the same life.
  • "Our" stories are not something for you to fetishize and exoticize.
  • "We" are not helpless objects for you to (hyper)sexualize and prey upon with your colonial gazes.
  • "We" do not need your saving: you will not turn us into your latest causes célèbres.
  • Non-heteronormative Muslims are not the (new) measuring stick by which you judge weather or not cultures/societies/countries/religious traditions are deemed as ‘modern/civilized/1st world’!
  • "We" are not ‘progressive/forward thinking/open-minded’ for identifying within your accepted categories of LGBTQI. 
  • Nor are “We” ‘medieval/backwards’ for identifying with our various religious traditions!
  • "Our" agentivity is not yours to gauge: the multiplicity of ways chosen to live our lives (emancipation from region/family/religion/culture OR NOT!) are all equally valid… regardless of whether they measure up to your expectations.
  • Enough with the tired clichés around the veil/unveiling/lifting the veil, kabab/kebab, sultan-harem, etc. imagery. It’s void of meaning, offensive and orientalist.
  • The concept of “Coming Out” and its veneration is firmly based within a framework of a society that values individuation, not all societies do (i.e. check your privilege!)
Thanks to Kawlture for brainstorming with me… This is a work in progress.
