Islamophobia After Orlando
Since the tragedy in Orlando there has been a spotlight on homophobia within Muslim communities, the subsequent anti-Islam backlash, and the claim by conservative Muslim organizations that you are “either with us or against us.”
The Los Angeles Press Club teams up with The Markaz and Muslims for Progressive Values (MPV), for this special Ask A Muslim, offering a discussion about being LGBTQI and Muslim.
This panel features Dr. Hamid Mavani, an Islamic scholar at Bayan Claremont, and Ani Zonneveld from MPV, with LA Times moderator Jaweed Kaleem. The conversation will review the realities faced by LGBTQI Muslims in the U.S. and abroad, and will discuss how mainstream Muslim organizations deal with homophobia. The panel will also discuss recent revelations that there is an entire “Islamophobia industry” in the United States, funded to the tune of more than $200 million.
This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is a must. Seats are limited.
