MASGD
Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity

Our acronym, MASGD, is pronounced like "masjid" [MASS-jid], the Arabic word for "mosque." The term "masjid" actually means "the place where one makes oneself prostrate." Our use of this acronym is both practical, as a mnemonic device for Muslims, and symbolic. It is used respectfully to indicate Islam as our common ground and to reflect our deep commitment to promoting an inclusive vision of Islam, in which no one is turned away from places of worship.
