23The National LGBT Bar Association will host a very informative and influential call-in concerning an ardent issue in both the LGBT community and the global community. Muslim and LGBT communities are often portrayed as holding incompatible world views, distinct and non-overlapping cultural identities and mutually exclusive political values and goals. But what is the reality in North America? Does this narrative of irreconcilable conflict depict the day-to-day reality of these communities? To what extent is this narrative used to obscure and deny the existence of shared world views, overlapping identities and common political goals? And does this narrative really serve Muslim or LGBT communities in North America or does it divide and conquer oppressed communities and help maintain the status quo? From 3 to 4 p.m. EST, The National LGBT Bar Association will have a national call in discussing LGBT issues and the Muslim Community. For more information or to RSVP, visit www.lgbtbar.org.
