Imaan is proud to endorse Spirit Day, 15 October. With millions of others we will be going purple to stand against bullying and to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. As LGBTQI Muslims, many of us are only too aware of the pain and fear of being bullied not just for our sexual or gender identity, but also our religious and ethnic backgrounds.
You can go purple, too! For more details, check out:
