Media: 2019


In 2018/2019 BMSDemocracy and Hidayah partnered up for the pilot of the supporting minority Muslims campaign which seeks to work with LGBTQI+ Muslims, Black Muslims, and minority sect Muslims such as Ahmadiyyah Muslims. To amplify the voices of minority Muslims, Hidayah and BMSDemocracy wanted to build understanding through dialogue and open discussion. Four roundtable discussions based on the intersecting topics of identity, sexuality, gender, and faith were created and were widely attended by people from all walks of life, Muslim and non Muslim. Through our roundtables the MET police asked us to host our 5th roundtable during hate crime awareness week to police officers and practitioners. We would like to personally thank BMSDemocracy, our volunteers, our membership and all those that attended the roundtable discussions that made them a success.
