520    This book highlights the lived experiences of gay Muslims 
       in Malaysia, where Islam is the majority and official 
       religion, and in Britain, where Muslims form a religious 
       minority. By exploring how they negotiate their religious 
       and sexual identities, Shah challenges the notion that 
       Islam is inherently homophobic and that there is an 
       unbridgeable divide between 'Islam' and the 'West'. Shah 
       also gained access to gay Muslim networks and individuals 
       for his in-depth research in both countries, and the book 
       investigates the different ways that they respond to 
       everyday anti-homosexual or anti-Muslim sentiments. Amid 
       the many challenges they confront, the gay Muslims whom 
       Shah encountered find innovative and meaningful ways to 
       integrate Islam and gay identity into their lives. The 
       Making of a Gay Muslim will appeal to students and 
       scholars with an interest in contemporary Islam, religion,
       gender and sexuality.
