Founded in 2017, Queer Crescent Healing is a healing justice organization centered on community, safety, and healing arts for LGBTQIA+ Muslims in the Bay Area and beyond. Our programs focus on building resilience, emerging leadership, connecting to spiritual practices and reclaiming our dignity, place and power within community.
Queer Crescent is building community, safety, healing arts and justice with LGBTQIA+ Muslims.
Build futures where LGBTQIA+ Muslims are leading fiercely with love, taking up space, and building possibilities towards our collective liberation.
Queer Crescent affirms that:
LGBTQIA+ Muslims are sacred beings
Loving ourselves and each other is a revolutionary act / The way we build and show up in and for our communities has transformative power
Collective healing is possible through transformative justice and working outside of the police and carceral systems through prison abolition
An intersectional and internationalist understanding and practice of Islam is not only possible, but necessary for our collective liberation
As U.S. based Muslims, our history and healing pathways are rooted in lessons from Black and indigenous communities survival and wisdom
Our struggle is linked with dismantling anti-blackness in particular and racism in general, zionism, xenophobia, islamophobia, ableism, queerphobia, transphobia and more
We strive to eliminate any and all barriers to the full rights, agency and freedom of movement for all people through radical accessibility
