Thanks for writing such a thoughtful piece. I find it very moving.
I’m quite new here as a writer on Medium, though until recently I contributed very heavily on Quora addressing queer topics.
I only mention that because an extremely cool, queer Muslim woman is a regular contributor over there.
She writes about being a practicing Muslim, an open lesbian, and a lover of Allah.
She also has great taste in hats.
I thought you might like an introduction to my friend.
