Abdellah Bijat is originally from Morocco, he is 22 years old. And he is the only Muslim in the ‘Mr. Gay Man Belgium’ competition’s final. Abdellah says that his religion and his sexual orientation are not opposites to each other. It is possible to be gay and Muslim at once and to live in harmony with yourself and others. Koran teaches people to be tolerant and to accept each other the way they are.
“I want to show that 2016 should be a feasible year for the existence of different cultures, including Islam, in order to all live in peace. It should be feasible for everyone to accept people as they are. The religion is somewhat contradictory when it comes to its stance on homosexuality.” he says
