2017 Retreat Announcement:

In 2016, we committed to hold the 2017 Retreat on the West Coast. However, unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, we were not able to secure a West Coast venue for this year. Instead, we will hold this year's Retreat outside of Philadelphia, PA, the weekend of October 13th -15th, 2017.

[Read more to learn more about what happened and why we made this difficult decision.]

At Muslim LGBT retreat, attendees try to reconcile their faith and sexuality - Washington Post - May 31, 2013 
"Some wore T-shirts that read, “Muslim + Gay = Fabulous.” They prayed. They attended workshops about pioneering progressive Muslims. Ever heard of Isabelle Eberhardt, a.k.a. Mahmoud Saadi, a convert to Islam who challenged gender norms at the turn of the 20th century?"

"Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come."

- Maulana Jalal-al-Din Rumi

"O humanity! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)."

- Holy Quran, Surah al-Hujurat (49:13) - Translated by Shakir
