Keywords: European Inclusive Islam; Gender Theory; LGBTQIA; Religious Belongin.

The relationship between religion and civil society shows both unsolved conflicts and mutual influences. In this regard, an interesting example is the data concerning religious affiliation, compared to a different kind of «affiliation» that only in recent times has emerged as a right deserving protection in social and religious contexts: the gender identity. Starting from the analysis of the inclusive European Islam (the part of Islam that accepts LGBTQIA identity instances), this study tries to determine the features of the dialogue between religious and social instances, in order to assess whether and to what extent religious rights and social norms influence and change each other.
