Bis of Colour at Imaan
Bis of Colour will be at Imaan Conference this Sunday, 26th August.
The conference organisers say:
“Entitled â€˜Diversity: the gift of Islam â€™(Al-Ikhtilaf, athaa min Allah) the conference brings together eminent scholars, community-leaders and individual LGBT Muslim delegates from across the globe and within our British communities to and celebrate and explore our understanding of an inclusive Islam, embracing the diversity of all Muslims, including those who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered or Intersexed.
“The conference will also address the unique issues facing the international queer ummah (community), by creating an interactive forum for debates, workshops, activities and artistic performances.Â We seek to empower and engage our delegates by reviewing historical and contemporary scholarship and Islamic interpretation around issues of gender and sexuality, while facilitating networking and community-building and an open exchange of personal experiences and testimony.Â This will be a truly international conference, led and attended by delegates and speakers from three continents.”
