Hidayah has a range of different activities that you can get involved in no matter what your confidence level:
Just want to meet others for social events? We run a range of social activities across the UK, from London, Birmingham and Manchester (with plans to spread even further).
Want to join one of our educational workshops? From debating sexuality and Islam to LGBTQI+ issues and sexual health, we will have a topic that will interest you.
Ready to be visible? We know that not all people are. However, for those who are, perhaps you would like to march with us at Pride events?
Want to campaign for LGBTQI+ Muslims and equality? Why not contact us and we can discuss how we can work together to do this.
Due to the current circumstances relating to the coronavirus, all monthly meet-ups and socials are suspended until it is safe and advisable to do so. Some of these meet-ups are being substituted by virtual sessions. The events calendar below will be updated with these details and once regular events resume. Hidayah WhatsApp groups, social media, emails and other digital services are still running as normal.
In the meanwhile, feel free to read our top tips for staying at home. There is always support available.
Could you help us find innovating ways to continue providing support using technology and adapting to current constraints? If you feel that you have extra time and would like to volunteer, we have a range of roles available.
