The Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity (MASGD)

The Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity (MASGD) works to support, empower and connect LGBT Muslims. We seek to challenge root causes of oppression, including misogyny and xenophobia. We aim to increase the acceptance of gender and sexual diversity within Muslim communities, and to promote a progressive understanding of Islam that is centered on inclusion, justice, and equality.

MASGD was launched January 23, 2013 at the Creating Change conference in Atlanta, GA. Building on the work of generations of LGBTQ Muslims and their allies, the new organization grew out of a working group brought together by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (The Task Force). 

The MASGD is a collective of Muslims who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and/or allied. It is led by a Steering Committee who's members represent diverse experiences as LGBT people and as Muslims. They bring a wealth of knowledge and talent to the organization. 

The MASGD Steering Committee currently includes 10 individuals, organized into committees to handle Organizational Development, Finance, Community Building (e.g. the Retreat), and Communications/Public Relations. The Steering Committee is guided by rotating co-coordinators.
