Mosques don't usually welcome gay and lesbian worshipers.
But on Friday a Muslim group just outside Paris held what's billed as the first "gay-friendly" Islamic worship in Europe.
The group also allows men and women to pray together.
The location was kept secret – for security reasons.
The World's Amy Bracken met the man who launched project.
She said he is a French Muslim who decided to fight for a more inclusive interpretation of Islam after he realized he was gay.
