Hi, I am a phD philosophy student in Ege University, in izmir/Turkey. Now I am working and studying on essentialism in LGBTIQ movement and different/alternative perspectives about gender and sexual identities. I want to learn the history of LGBTIQ movement especially in Middle-East, "Muslim countries". In Turkey LGBTIQ movement s affected by european perspective and all NGOs and most of LGBTIQ groups are stuck in representation politics and right struggle as European ones. Most of all connects European NGOs and groups. But I want to get in touch with LGBTIQ people especially they identify themselves as Muslims and want to learn how you formulise and describe the concepts, what is your perspective. I think political subjectivity should not be described and seen just secular. Therefore I want to how Muslim LGBTIQ groups/NGOs etc founded, what they focus exactly and how they move in political and social, economical spheres. I dont think that Islam is a cruel monster. Eventhough I dont identify myself Muslim and I dont believe in God, I think İslamic perspective is very important to create a new political sphere and solidarity and to get rid of essentialism.
