Being gay and a feminist is not incompatible with Islam. An inclusive place of worship would give hope back to many French Muslims pray outside a mosque in Paris, because of capacity problems in the city's mosques.

I've had the opportunity over the years to know a number of gay people who had been brought up as Muslim and who still had at least some of that faith still in them. Many had no real, or legal, choice but to go back to some places in the world where you don't even want to imagine growing up to be gay, but they did what they needed to survive. While most of those who claim to be speaking for Allah and the entire Muslim faithful have a downright psychotic reaction to homosexuals in their midst, there are voices of sanity among the faithful like this that gives at least a glimmer of hope for change.
