Being Gay and Muslim

Someone very close to my heart has broken the rules in a way that's less acceptable than the ways I have: he's gay. He's Muslim, Arab, Libyan, masculine... and gay.

What breaks my heart isn't that he's broken the rules--I've broken a number on my own and so has everyone I know--but that this is a deal breaker. You can screw up in a multitude of ways...and no matter what beauty and magic you've given to the world, you can't be Arabic, Muslim, and gay. Or so they tell you.

This was a post I apparently didn't ever publish from years ago, but still remains true. So I'm posting it now.
