They can't unless you ignore what their holy texts say about being gay.

Due to the left's racism of low expectations, muslims are wonderful people despite the way they treat/view gays.   

"Islam is a religion of peace" is only true if you ignore all the violence it promotes, such as "kill all the infidels where ever you find them".

I would think the same way that gay people of any other faith handle it. How one goes about interpreting their religious texts is a big thing, and it is possible to interpret or receive seemingly anti-gay texts in such a way that it is understood as not speaking directly to being gay or referring to a specific context that does not condemn being gay in the same way that anti-gay interpretations do. While Christian scholars have been doing this for a little longer, Muslim scholars have also begun to offer contemporary interpretations or understandings that are accepting of gay people.

I'm an atheist, so I have no horse in this race, as it were.

There is a huge difference between the bible (OT and NT) and the quran.     The bible was written in many different languages and then translated many times.   The quran, in it's official form, is supposed to be unchanged since it was originally written. 

When the bible talks about homosexuality, it often means "temple prostitution" as was common in the old pagan days.  Swapping the meaning is partly due to bad editing and partly purpose-driven editing as we see in the KJV.  Another example is that the KJV added many anti-women things that aren't in the older texts. 

It's easier to do mental gymnastics with a book that has countless edits and translations than it is of a book that is supposed to be totally unchanged since it was originally written.     Of course, there's plenty of evidence that the quran has been edited quite a bit over it's first 300 years, most notably with the removing of the "satanic verses".   

The bible claims to be inspired by the word of god, while the quran claims to be the perfect word of god.
