Peter Tatchell: Reaching Out To LGBT Muslims

Peter Tatchell is launching a new campaign to convince everyday Muslims to embrace LGBT rights, and improve links between the LGBT and Muslim communities.

The veteran human rights campaigner will hold a street stall outside Whitechapel tube station in East London this Wednesday, in a bid to reach out to the local Muslim community... 

Pink News.

Well done, Peter!

Hope no-one thinks this shows a patronising 'White Savior' mindset, and you think LGBT Muslims can't do this for themselves.

More details here.

This is a big 'yah boo sucks' to these silly people, eh?

"Clearly, Tatchell, whom I strongly defended against homophobia when he was selected as the Labour candidate in Bermondsey, has lost his political bearings and constructed a fantasy world in which the main threat we face, worse than the far right, is Islamic fundamentalist hordes."

Peter Tatchell not only encourages Islamophobia – he defends the right of homophobes to incite hatred against the LGBT community, Bob Pitt, Islamophobia Watch 2011.
