Dozens of queer Muslims and allies came together to march with Muslims for Progressive values in NYC’s pride parade 50 years after the Stonewall protests.

‘I didn’t think I’d be marching with other muslims. I didn’t even think that there would be other Muslims who even accepted me’ - Bushra

Muslims for Progressive Values is a national nonprofit that provides a space for muslims to follow what they say are ‘traditional Qur'anic ideals of inclusiveness. and social justice.’ Founded in 2007, the group has chapters in cities around the U.S. and many LGBTQ+ members.

‘Pride as part of the global narrative allows us to take part in some of these conversations’ - Ashraf
