Abstract

With the events that occurred at the Pulse nightclub on the night of June 12, 2016, the LGBTQ community came together in mourning with the Muslim community of the United States of America. This sparked controversy and conversation between an even smaller minority population: the LGBTQ Muslim community. There is only an incredibly small body of research conducted on the LGBTQ Muslim community due to difficulty identifying the population for various reasons. This study was conducted as an exploratory study into the small body of research on LGBTQ Muslims.
