‘The majority of Muslims think it’s not natural’: Muslim lesbians prepare to walk in Mardi Gras 2016 – as one poses in a sparkly sequined BURQA

Organisers are expecting the biggest ever crowd of Muslims to turn out at Australia’s biggest gay and lesbian celebration at the weekend.

Alice Aslan, from the Muslims Against Homophobia group (MAHA), said she has been deluged with supporters wanting to join her marching at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on Saturday.

‘We had difficulty finding people in the first year but now many people want to come,’ said Ms Aslan, who previously marched with a handful of friends in 2011 and 2012.

    Muzzle lesbos? Is it weird if I just want to watch?

      These kinds of oddities can only exist in societies where the majority of citizens are still secular or, at least, non-Muslim: the majority then acts as a counter-weight to mainstream Islamic ideologues. Australia currently fits the bill. But it is an interim phase: as the percentage of Muslims climbs in a society, non-“conservative” Muslims of all kinds – gays, seculars, feminists, etc – will be suppressed, squeezed out and disappear.

    Well….lesbianism ISN’T natural….but harmless enough.

    They are to Islam as most American Jews are to Judaism.

    Don’t they need permission from the anti-Semites who march in Toronto’s Pride? Or something like that, this PC stuff is getting harder and harder to figure out.

    One of these things is not like the other one!
