Difficulties Experienced by Muslim LGBT Women
Safra Project


Most LBT women struggle to reconcile their sexual orientation or gender identity with their cultural or religious indentities.  This struggle can lead to mental health problems such as depression and self harm. In addition, the consequences of coming out (or being found out) can be extremely harsh for Muslim LBT women, particularly for those who are entirely dependent on their families.  These consequences can include total or partial rejection by families and friends leading to isolation; intense pressure to get married sometimes leading to forced marriage; domestic violence; homelessness; losing custody of children; and / or abduction of children.
