Join our Coming out party!
CEMB had its first coming out party on April 17th 2018, with Maryam Namazie and Sadia Hameed being our first recipients of our Certificates of Apostasy from Islam!

The Philosophy behind
Apostasy is often associated with shame, pain, disownment, death, depression, isolation and all things negative. Although these are a reality, apostasy is also a turning point for many, to freedom, critical thinking and independence.
CEMB wanted a celebration of apostasy. We have committed no crime, therefore we will not act as though we have done something to be ashamed of.
Apostasy frees our hearts and minds; our coming out parties are celebration of our freedom from the shackles of theology.
How do I join?
In order to join our next coming out party and receive a certificate, you need to follow these simple steps:
- Join CEMB as a member
- Have a 1:1 meetup with a caseworker (in person or via skype)
- Sign up for our next coming out party (you can join our range of meet-ups in the meantime)
- Attend the party, receive your certificate and celebrate with Us
This is a symbolic Certificate given to our members who join us for the party. (Arabic wording (La Elaha – لا اله ) means there is no God)
