Gay magazine in race row

Sick Face of IslamThe GALHA dispute (see here, here, here, here, here, here and here) finally makes the mainstream press.

According to Imaan, a support group for gay and lesbian Muslims, the anti-Islamic views of GALHA are just the tip of the iceberg in the gay community. “These comments are completely outrageous,” said Imaan’s spokeswoman, Rasina X. “In lots of ways the gay community reflects the straight community but Galha has gone beyond what the average straight person thinks. These comments are disgusting. They are worse than what the BNP would publish. It is racist.”
