Assistant Professor of Anthropology Mariam Durrani was interviewed for a recent HuffPost article.
In “American Muslims Are Now More Accepting Of Homosexuality Than White Evangelicals,” Durrani noted that “Millennial Muslims are very much part of the larger American youth population who are more tolerant and loving of queer friends and family.”
“As part of a marginalized and discriminated population, Muslim youth are more likely to adopt solidarity positions with other marginalized and discriminated communities,” she said.
Durrani continued, “All of this shows that being queer is part of the American Muslim community and youth, as usual, are the most progressive in this regard.”
Durrani also published an essay titled “Beyond Resistance and Complicity” in the spring/summer issue of Harvard Divinity School’s Bulletin.
