Homosexuality, transidentity, and Islam: a study of scripture confronting the politics of gender and sexuality

Ludovic-Mohamed Zahed, Adi Bharat (Translator)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

Homosexuality, Transidentity, and Islam builds on existing scholarship in a variety of disciplines on the topic of gender and sexuality in Islam. In this concise-yet comprehensive-book, Ludovic-Mohamed Zahed systematically analyses the entirety of Islamic scriptural sources that relate to the question of gender and sexuality in relation to their historical contexts. In doing so, he argues that homosexuality and transidentity have a legitimate place within the Islamic tradition. Zahed also examines the historical and contemporary socio-political impacts of inclusive and exclusive (or, quite simply, homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic) interpretations of scripture. Thus, this study dynamically examines the connections between scripture, interpretation, and the politics of gender and sexuality.
