Event Full Details: Workshop with young women/young leaders who help out in the younger youth sessions

This workshop is to open up discussion around sexual orientation, allow the young people to ask questions and prepare the young people to help facilitate sessions with other young people. Group of 10 young Muslim women.

Interesting converstion with young people about Islam and sexual orientation - many young people viewed LGB a 'test' to your faith that God gives you - you are allowed to have the feelings but shouldn't act on them.
As a Muslim yuou can be accepting, respectful, tolerant but are not allowed to act on those feelings. Half the group would be interested in working with the younger people on a workshop and that it's important but were a little reserved about it ansd had some concerns. Will set up a meeting to follow to plan for the workshop.
