Q: I have contacted many doctors. I am like a girl, my body, chest, etc. My feelings are also like a woman. I know that this is not allowed in Islam and it is a sin. I am controlling myself but I want sexual relations with an older man and want to marry. My doctor confirmed that I am gay. What should I do?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
