Welcome to the home of the
“I am not Haraam” project - a blog created for
LGBTQ Muslims by LGBTQ Muslims.

Haraam is an Arabic word used in Islam to mean “forbidden”. This project has been started as a way for LGBTQ Muslims to stand up and proclaim that we will not allow our existence as LGBTQ Muslims to be erased any longer.
We are not kafirs, we are not deviant, our existence is not a sin. This is our space to say:
WE ARE NOT HARAAM.

--------------------------------
Call for submissions
--------------------------------
We’re calling for any Muslim who identifies as part of the LGBTQ spectrum to submit to this blog. Allies and supportive families of LGBTQ Muslims are also welcome and encouraged.
The theme for submissions is quite simply,
“I am not haraam”
(or “my son/daughter/lover/sibling is not haraam”).

We’d like you to share what it means for you to be an LGBTQ Muslim. You can tell us about your struggles, your everyday life, anything that makes you, you!

Submissions can take any form; text posts, audio posts, art work, poetry, video etc.

How do I submit? You can submit by clicking on “submit” at the top of the page or by emailing iamnotharaam@gmail.com

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to message us.
-----------------
Please note: This is a positive space for LGBTQ Muslims. We will not publish or respond to any negative or hateful remarks. We will not respond to any message asking us to justify our existence as LGBTQ Muslims.

Salaam my brothers and sisters, just a friendly reminder from one of your mods to remember:

Having open, honest, and healthy discussions about sexuality in the context of Islam is wonderful and progressive.
However, let’s not forget that many of our brothers and sisters in both Islam and humanity simply are (or choose of their own free will) to be asexual, chaste, and non-sexual beings.

Yes, we must always keep in mind that the Muslim Ummah has tried far too hard to erase the human desire for sex, tried to sweep it under the rug to an unhealthy, obsessive, and unrealistic degree— but this should never allow us to forget about those who identify as Asexual.

We must talk of sex, learn of sex, and respect the sexual choices of all those around us.

We are human, sexuality is a very real part of who we are, whether we choose to engage or not, the decision in itself reminds us of our sexual reality.

No matter the choice, we are not Haraam.

Mutual respect, always.
