Faisal Alam will speak on "Hidden Voices: The Lives of LGBT Muslims," at a luncheon on Wednesday April 18 at noon. Space is limited, and RSVP is required - email lmaurer@ithaca.edu to reserve your place.

Faisal Alam is a queer-identified Muslim activist of Pakistani descent. At age 19, while trying to reconcile his sexuality with his faith, Faisal organized the first-ever gathering of LGBT Muslims, which led to the founding of Al-Fatiha, an organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex & questioning (LGBTIQ) Muslims, and their allies. Faisal led the organization from its inception in 1997 to 2004 as its volunteer director. The mission of Al-Fatiha is to support and empower LGBTIQ Muslims seeking ways to integrate their faith and their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Using his own life experience and by exploring the complex history of the Islamic world, Faisal strives to bring new light onto the lives of an often invisible and silent community: Muslims who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning.

Sponsored by the Center for LGBT Education, Outreach & Services and the Cornell LGBT Resource Center.
