In a recent BBC report on homosexual Muslims in the UK, one interviewee described an experience she had at a gay pride rally. She says, “‘There was an occasion at gay pride once where one of the marchers turned around and quite crudely said, ‘we didn’t know pride was allowing suicide bombers on the march’ –– it was really shocking to hear it from a fellow gay marcher.” The intersection of an affirmative declaration of gay and Muslim identifications runs into the ascriptive identification of all Muslims as terrorists.

Welcome to SARBAT, the website for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) Sikhs.
The word Sarbat derives from the final line of the Ardas (the congregational Prayer of Supplication).
Nanak naam chardi kala, terey bhaney sarbat da bhalla
Nanak says that with God’s name comes happiness and well-being, and with Your blessings, may there be peace and prosperity for all.
It is with that concept of happiness and well-being for all of mankind in mind that this website has been set up.
