Building Community: Spiritual Care for Queer Muslims in North America


Zainab's focus is on queer sexuality and Islamic spirituality within Muslim and South Asian communities based in the United States. She aims to understand how LGBTQ persons negotiate belonging through Islamic spirituality and how networks of support are imagined, created and sustained in living precariously between Islam and queer sexualities within the U.S. security state today.
