Summary "Hijab: unveiling queer Muslim lives is the first known collection of South African Muslim stories relating to Islam and sexual diversity. This anthology shares real-life stories of people that have struggled, or may still be struggling, to reconcile their spirituality and their sexuality. These are stories that illustrate the oneness of being and reflect on how some interpretations of the scriptures may alienate others. Although it focuses predominantly on Muslim stories, it is universal in its approach in dealing with spirituality rather than religion. Although the stories are all biographies, or autobiographies, the style of creative writing was selected to maintain a story-telling method. The writing of the stories was a therapeutic process for the authors and hopefully it will also provide strength and courage to others in similar situations, not so much through a deeper understanding of the person who wrote the story necessarily, but rather through a process of identification with the circumstances of the author"--The Inner Circle website
