But how can you be Muslim and gay?
That's the question I get asked the most. I laugh because lots of non-Muslims ask me how I can be Muslim at a time of ISIS and terrorism and lots of Muslims ask me how I can be gay.
There's no easy answer. Not least because the question is usually asked with some set-in prejudice. Trying to explain it to someone who doesn't have an open mind will burn you out. Surround yourself with people who will love you no matter what, rather than shouting into a black hole.
If there's one thing I've learnt it's that you can't please everyone. Just do you. The rest will fall into place.
