Queer and going to the mosque: 'I've never felt more Muslim than I do now'
Friday, 27 December 2013, at 2.45pm. That's when my life transformed.
I was emotionally and physically exhausted after being the primary caregiver of my ex-partner, who was in chemo and working long hours as an editor at a magazine. I was desperately seeking comfort, support, spiritual guidance and community.
This perfect storm brought me to Unity mosque in downtown Toronto, one of a handful of prayer spaces in the world open to queer Muslims like myself.
