About The Event

Rumi's Cave Academy presents...

Dr Ziad Amir, "Accusing Muslims of Homosexuality."

Few people know that not only were Muslims perceived as sexually lax and promiscuous in the Victorian period, but the religion was also accused of permitting homosexuality. Today, this has changed considerably in that modern critics of Islam claim the religion to be both sexually repressive and distinctly homophobic.

This short discussion will unpack these shifts from a historical, sociological, and philosophical perspective, and will also consider how the debate manifests itself today, particularly in the British media.
