lesbian muslim by Keepbreathing25 lesbian muslim by Keepbreathing25
Not much , but I wanted to express how lesbian Muslims feel , because we live such a double life
Forced to hide our true identity .

p.s. this is art which means a way of expressing a feeling AND NOT MAKING A STATEMENT ABOUT RELIGION
so please , no religion questions ( you have Google search for that )
no insults
no doubting my beliefs
simply critique the the picture in the form of art whether you think its good or bad i don't care , any thing else i will not answer and you will be wasting your precious time ,simply because you are trying to provide me with your religious wisdom through deviatart!!! i mean seriously save them for the mosque or islamway , that certainly not the place for them . so if your majesty disapprove the image just click the little X on the top right of screen :)

Religion, beliefs, gender, race, and hatred are powerless against the powers of love, at it's most definite core. 

You are a beautiful, lesbian, Muslim woman and thought his post is old, I want you to know that you are most definitely not alone.

oh my god how is this getting so many ignorant responses?
Anyway dear, first off, trust me, I'm not muslim but I do live in the middle east (lebanon) and I know PLENTY of lesbian muslims so don't you for a second feel alone or isolated. And speaking out like you are doing is the bravest most courageous thing you can do. Living two lives is exhausting, I know, but by acts of boldness like yours we can slowly change perceptions and educate people.
Keep feelin the love, and most importantly, keep expressing it. Haters, i'm told, are gonna hate, so don't waste your time replying to the ignorant bigots. 
Sending you support from Beirut :)

If anyone is ignorant it would be people who claim others to be so. I (and all Muslims) have no problem with anyone being a Lesbian, as that's their perception in life, but to say there is a "lesbian Muslim" is outlandish if you knew anything about Islam. I don't want  to seem attacking in any way as your support for Lesbians is not what hurts me (figuratively speaking) but the fact that you add on, "Muslim". If you are a Lesbian you are a Lesbian. If you are a Muslim you are a Muslim. That is the message we "ignorant" folk are trying to say. 

Thank you and have a great day, In'Sha'Allah.

I notice you have used my image to create this. I would appreciate if you would ask before using my images in artwork.  I especially dislike that you have created such an offensive piece with ignorant commentary about Muslim women. I don't appreciate my work being used in this way and I have filed a violation report with Deviant Art.

I am totally with you on this. These works seem so hypocritical.
