The LGBT * IQ Center of Competence of the Ibn Rushd – Goethe Mosque is now the “Anlaufstelle für Islam und Diversity” (Contact point for Islam and diversity) and an important milestone for homosexual Muslims. We want to help, cooperate and network. Discrimination, exclusion and personal attacks have no space with us!
The LGBT * IQ Competence Center of the Ibn Rushd – Goethe Mosque aims to offer queer Muslims a place of social and spiritual security. We regard every human being as God’s creation, so we will not nor accept that people are excluded from religious worship because of their sexual orientation, which is contrary to human dignity.
Because there are also LGBT * IQ Muslims who are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation or experience even worse, the center of competence should create a direct and fast contact point and thus give the opportunity to seek help and advice. Especially in religious and cultural issues, which are very sensitively charged, the competence center tries to take on an inter-religious or intercultural mediating function.
