« A gay Baha'i couple in the Hague, 1956 | Main | sadness AND relief »


Im a teenage boy growing up in the UK. I just dont have feelings for girls, i just dont feel sexually attracted to them. I don't feel sexually attacted to boys either but i think i'm in love with a boy from my school. He is straight and has had many girlfriends where as i have never had a sexual relationship with a girl. Im from a very strict family where being homosexual would not be acceptable. My parents would not accept me as a person if they thought i was gay. At times i feel suicidal because i cannot comply with my parents wishes. I don't know what to do about my feelings but its swallowing me up inside. I have turned to the mosque for comfort. Praying to Allah in my free time. I am so confused. Please help me with my dilemma

Moderator's note to Rabjid x:  You might be interested in the Gay Muslims in the U.K. series on the Discussion page.  Also you may be interested in the organization Imaan, an LGBTQI Muslim support group based in the U.K.   We are, however, not recommending this group as we are only superficially familiar with it.  It is up to you to judge its worth for yourself.
