There is one thing we know for certain. You can bet your money on it. There are LGBTQ Muslim people all over the world. We might not hear about it often, but they exist and it looks as if they're starting to speak up a little more.

Putin Wants Constitutional Ban On Same Sex Marriage
Things don't seem to be getting any better for LGBTQ people in Russia. That backward man, Putin, now wants to define the definition of marriage in an amendment to the Russian Constitution as "between a man and a woman." Apparently, it's all about religion because he aligns himself with the Russian Orthodox Church. It always seems to be about religion.
Putin has said he is not prejudiced against gay people, but has asserted that homosexuality and gender fluidity are out of step with traditional Russian values.
Here's the link. There's more to the story in general, and more details about Putin's alleged motives.

What readers said about Kendle's Fire.
While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don't find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don't think it could have been done better.
