The NY Times has an excellent article up about gay Muslims in the US and some of the theological inroads they're making into changing religious prohibitions against same sex loving.
They're making headway in the West to develop a queer-affirming theology:
For gay Muslims, change may come via a nascent body of scholarship in minority Muslim communities where the reassessment of sacred texts used to damn homosexuality is gaining momentum.[...]
As a rule, gay Muslim activists lacked the scholarly grounding needed to scrutinize time-honored teachings. But that is changing, activists say, partly because no rigid clerical hierarchy exists in the West to bar such research.[...]
Mirroring the feminist school of Islam, gay advocates pursue a holistic interpretation that emphasizes accepting everyone as equally God’s creation.
It also sounds a lot like Christian queer theology, borrowing from feminism and looking to teachings of equality over a few specific and rigidly interpreted passages that condemn something known as homosexuality to people over a millennium ago.
