EXCLUSIVE: “I’m Married and I can’t come out” The Harsh Life of being Gay and Muslim in Britain


VETERAN Gay Rights activist Peter Tatchell and the BBC attempted to promote LGBT rights outside a Mosque in London this week and received a frosty reception, but Politicalite spoke to two Muslims about the controversial Issue and one said: “It will never be OK to be gay and be Muslim.” 

Thatchell held a small protest outside a Mosque in central London where he and other activists and handed out leaflets.

A BBC reporter then tried to spin the bold report as a positive… even though one man verbally abused Thatchell and another Gay Muslim could not appear on camera due to the rampant Homophobia in Islam, right here in the UK.

FAKE NEWS: Reporter Claims Worshipers “Receptive” to Protest…

The BBC tried to claim the worshipers were “pretty receptive” to the message, although the broadcast provided no actual evidence of this claim.

One Muslim worshipper told Peter: “Why you come here? … why you not go to Synagogue… or church?” before angrily walking off in a hump.

ANGRY: Muslim Man Outraged At Protest

Politicalite has been reporting about the horrific state of affairs of Gay Muslims in the Islamic Community across Britain for months, and we have even been smeared as “Far Right” in the press and lost funding from advertisers due to our provocative style talking about the issue at hand – that’s the best way – stunts like the BBC’s never work.

Most in the Muslim community refuse to talk about it – we have contacted countless Mosques in the UK to discuss Gay Rights – and have not received one reply back.

This week, I was even banned Facebook for sarcastically mocking the abysmal Gay Rights in the Muslim community after I used… an Eyeroll emoji.

Facebook enforced Islamic blasphemy laws over the post which was later picked up by Pamela Geller and Alternative outlets in the United States.

One Muslim man from Manchester, who we are referring to as “Adeel” to protect his Identity told me that it’s “Impossible” to be Gay and Muslim.

The 26-year-old exclusively told Politicalite on Grindr: “I’m Married with a child, but I can’t ever come out.”

“I have a secret partner, as my parents forced me into an arranged marriage when I was 18.”

“I also hook up with guys on regular occasions using Grindr, where I meet other closeted Muslim men in similar situations.”

“My wife doesn’t know, or my parents.”

“I have to keep it secret otherwise I would be shunned by my community, it’s impossible to be Gay and Muslim.”

This is the stark reality in Britain when you are gay and Muslim, but one woman told us not to Confuse hate in Islam with Allah’s love.

We spoke to the anonymous Muslim woman via Twitter who said: “Don’t confuse Allah’s love for peoples hatred.”

To be honest, I’d never looked at it that way and I asked the woman, who did not give a name if she thought there was any hope for gay people under Islam and I asked her if she thought it could change.

She said: “Many Muslims who are Millenials support LGBTQ people.”

“My own cousin is a non-binary lesbian. My best friend is a trans man. Personally, I love the LGBTQ community because they ALWAYS stand up for Muslims in the US. How can I hate someone who protects me from oppression?”

I told her that I knew far too many Muslim guys who are gay and are unable to live their lives as who they are, Often marrying women to keep the family happy or are too scared to come out. I said that’s why I was rolling my eyes at the picture I was banned for on Facebook.

She said: “Many people I roll with are very supportive of LGBTQ and are safe to come out to. Everyone knows my house is a safe place if they need to seek shelter or a listening ear.”

“We have a long way to go, but we have come far, too.”
