Here we go again. As usual, Islamophobes across the nation are blaming all of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims for the massacre in Orlando.
To combat this, many queer Muslim members have taken to social media to remind others in the LGBTQ community that, despite what folks like Donald Trump are saying, the entire Islamic religion cannot be blamed for last weekend’s tragedy.

Scroll down to see what some Muslim members of the LGBTQ community are saying, and how others are responding to them…
I'm gay and Muslim. I want to tell the LGBT community that the Orlando shooter doesn't reflect my faith as a Muslim.

#GaysForTrump it's either that or have liberals sacrifice our lives to Allah to prove they're not racist?
