dc.description.abstractThis article examines how British Muslim gay men may safeguard membership in the religious group, which can be threatened as a result of self-identifying as gay. Twenty British Pakistani Muslim gay men were interviewed. Data were analyzed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis through the heuristic lens of Identity Process Theory. The following themes are discussed: (1) “Gay identity casting doubt upon one’s Muslim-ness”; (2) “Ramadan: A symbolic opportunity to be a ‘true Muslim’”; (3) “Accepting ‘Muslim views’ and religious authenticity.” Data suggest that threatened Muslim identity can lead to hyper-affiliation to the religious ingroup, which is achieved through a multitude of sub- strategies.en
