LGBT Jews and Muslims

last sunday morning (16th october), 9.32-10.00am, on bbc world service radio
wrestling with god (presented by marco werman) (in the heart and soul series)

David Baker is a practising and proud Jew. He is also gay and in the eyes of many of his fellow Jews the two cannot go together.
He has had to wrestle with these two sides to his identity leading to many hours of praying and soul searching, exploring whether he could still remain within his faith. Just after the Orlando shootings in June he was invited to the Iftar, the fast breaking meal in Islam, alongside LGBT Muslims and it was there that he realised that Jews and Muslims have more in common than he had first thought.”

Let’s not wait for another crime, against humanity and God, to bring us to our senses.”
