Britain’s LGBTQ+ Muslim history

A collection of queer Muslim artefacts at the UK’s first LGBTQ+ museum hopes to change the narrative.

In July, Queer Britain opened in London with its inaugural show, We Are Queer Britain.

It’s a powerful, expansive collection of art, activist and history from across the community, including artefacts from the world’s longest-running LGBTQ+ Muslim organisation, Imaan.

The exhibition showcases three items: a rainbow khimar hijab, a south Asian camouflage shalwar khameez and a Palestinian keffiyeh. All three items were worn by members Imaan at London Pride in 2005.
