The LGBT lobby has been promoting values inconsistent with the human fitra for the past several decades. It is time now that we offer the young generation who is being bombarded with confusing messages the true understanding of homosexuality & identity.


The Gender Identity Resource Center (GIRC) is a project of Islamic Leadership Institute of America (ILIA), a 501c(3) youth development and leadership training non-profit. GIRC provides youth and their providers with legitimate, authentic resources addresses key topics related to gender relations and identity, in particular the following topics:
