Peter Tatchell, director of the organisation, said: “In light of the horrific massacre of LGBT people in Orlando [we want] to encourage an understanding that although gay people and Muslims are different, we share a common experience of prejudice, discrimination, and hate crime, and on that basis we should unite together to challenge all hate.

“We also want to challenge homophobia in the Muslim community and defend LGBT Muslims against persecution by fellow Muslims.”
