Hendricks is an openly gay Imam living in Cape Town, South Africa. In South Africa, religion remains a large source of queer and transgender discrimination. As such, Hendricks has positioned himself as helpful source for queer and transgender laypeople who need support. He has spent his life fostering conversations about sexuality and gender in Islam. His support is seen through his involvement with the Inner Circle, an organisation dedicated to supporting queer and gender-variant Muslims, and his dedication to inclusive religious services for LGBT+ peoples.
