I have had a very tough life dealing with the emotions that I kept having for people I liked.

Every race and ethnicity counts some Muslims among its number, and mosques have been built around the world where they absorb local marriage customs.

Many Muslim scholars take pains to make it clear that local customs often influence the practice of the religion.

Following my blog posts about the coming-out of Yemeni revolution activist Alaa Jarban (here and here) I received an email from another Yemeni who identifies as gay.

I'm posting it below, with the sender's permission: When I read Alaa’s coming-out news on Albab, I was tearful because I realised that I am not alone even though I know that many are out there, but none is ready to speak out and I don’t blame them, or to be precise I don’t blame us.
