Imam Daayie Abdullah is the only openly gay imam — a Muslim community leader — in North America.
Imam Abdullah has spent over the last 10 years trying to bridge a gap between Islam and homosexuality. He has experienced trouble from both conservative Islamic groups and anti-gay groups.
“It’s not for them to agree with me, or for me to disagree with them. It’s for them to understand that we have a voice, the gay and lesbian community have a voice,” he says.
