Islam, sexual diversity and access to health services

26th June 2013
While Islam allows for difference of opinion, and the religious leaders disagree on many social issues, most orthodox Muslim scholars are vehemently opposed to homosexuality. However there are many progressive Muslim scholars with varied positive opinions about gender and sexual orientation. This discussion paper, from Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health (APCOM), urges human rights organisations and policy makers to create a database of progressive religious leaders and lobby for their support.
