Coping with being gay and Muslim. (no thanks to Allah...)

If you are gay and living in a traditional, religious household- whether it be Muslim, Jewish or Christian - you will in all likelihood feel you are living a lie, unable to tell those you love that the person they think is their wonderful son or daughter is not quite who they think.
Because of the vicious hadith and clear verses in the Qur'an that show how Allah despises those who aren't red-blooded heterosexuals who enjoy the thought of an eternity spent in delicious sexual congress with high-breasted, magically rejuvenating virgins, it is probable that gays in Muslim households suffer more than most. A supposition supported by suicide figures from studies in France and Germany.
But there is hope.
I came across this wonderfully supportive and life-affirming page on the ex-Muslim section of Reddit.
I suggest any gay youngster feeling depressed or isolated or just in need of a reassurance that they are not alone visit it.
