This weekend it was our honour, responsibility and pleasure to sanctify the marriage of Michael Sinan Amir Aslanes and Mikael Costa at New Unity. This was a powerful moment for Queer people of faith, in a world that divides our identities, separating our sexualities, sex and gender expressions from our faiths, families, communities and cultures, a small intimate Islamic marriage ceremony filled with love was the fulfilment of a decade of dreams for the couple, and for us as a community.

“I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage!”
