There are "some Muslims" who claim that if there are homosexuals, is that God has allowed it.

However, in other countries, these homosexuals risk heavy prison sentences as well as all bullying which are linked to the prisoner's situation. What's more, the Qur'an only addresses the issue of homosexuality by mentioning the fate reserved for those who practice it: the punishment of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. They were transgressed God's laws and have been punished. Thus, based on the Koran, homosexuality is haram in islam.
