Unity Mosque

After having to hide their relationship while making the Hajj, El-Farouk—a gay Imam—and his husband Troy co-founded Unity Mosque in Toronto, one of the world's first queer-affirming and gender-equal mosques. Though the mosque receives death threats, it forges on, playing a life-saving role in the lives of its members.
