Salaam Family Week: A Space for LGBTQ Muslims and their Families
Sunday, July 28
3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Salaam Family Week is a space for LGBTQ Muslim families, people who come from Muslim families, and families with Muslim members. This is a safe space for us to share our experiences with “family” in all its complexity and power: choosing our families, building our families, and navigating our families of origin. Share, connect, pray, snack or just play. Open to people of all ages, genders, and experiences of Islam. Hosted by Raquel Evita Saraswati, an out queer Muslim who serves as Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Family Equality Council. Personally, Raquel co-founded the Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity nearly a decade ago, and chairs the Mayor’s Commission on LGBTQ Affairs in the city of Philadelphia. She is a well-known advocate on issues related to Islam, gender and sexuality; and is thrilled to host this gathering at Family Week!
