Homosexuality is still forbidden by law in many Islamic countries, queer life is often only possible in a very hidden way. But even in a city like Berlin, it is often difficult for queer, devout Muslims to combine religion and openly lived sexuality.

The Ibn Rushd-Goethe Mosque, a cooperation partner of the exhibition “Aspects of Islam” at the Humboldt Forum, explicitly sees itself as a place where this alleged contradiction does not apply. In this Späti, the mosque’s imam, Seyran Ateş, reports on the background that led to the mosque’s founding and on her daily work. Queer Muslims from Berlin will talk to her about their difficulties and ways of solving them, both in the Muslim and the queer community.

Afterwards there will be music by Kurdish Queen, who has been working as a drag queen in clubs, theaters or shows for four years.

The event will be held in German.
