UK: Launch of the SAFRA Project
Source:The SAFRA Project
The Safra Project is a voluntary resource project based in the UK and aims to conduct research and provide information on issues relating to lesbian, bisexual and transgender women who identify themselves as Muslim, culturally and/or religiously.
Safra is an Arabic word meaning journey and discovery. The combination of prejudices based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender, religion, race, culture and immigration status experienced by Muslim LBT women is unique. This is why we recognised the need for a resource project inclusive of all these factors, separately and in combination. The Safra Project was set up primarily in response to the difficulties experienced by Muslim LBT women in accessing appropriate social and legal services. These difficulties are exacerbated by a lack of knowledge and awareness amongst service providers of the particular issues facing Muslim LBT women.
