A Queer Iftar with United Latinx Pride

  • Build Chicago 5100 West Harrison Street Chicago, IL, 60644 United States (map)

Save the Date! Masjid al-Rabia is excited to announce that we will be participating in the 8th Annual United Latinx Pride Week! This year's theme is "Self Care as Resistance." 

Our small community is vastly diverse and beautiful! Join us on the 11th day of Ramadan to learn and discuss about the different ways that Queer Muslims resist through self-care. There will be a discussion from some of our community members on the intersectionalities of being Queer, Latinx, and Muslim. 

Since this year's United Latinx Pride Week falls on our holy month of Ramadan, we will conclude the discussion with a breaking of the fast. Dates and water will be provided with a delicious community contributed Iftar! Currently maghrib (sunset) is calculated for 08:23 PM. Hope to see you there, inshallah!

***This will be a potluck! If you're able to, please bring something to share for a large amount of people. Drinks, plates, utensils, napkins, and dates will be provided. Please indicate what you will be bringing in the google docs spreadsheet below, please pork-free and alcohol-free. Everyone is welcome to attend and break fast with us whether you fast or not, you do not need to contribute to the potluck.***
