Episode 23: Let’s Talk About Unconditional Acceptance

On this episode, we talk with our wonderful friend Sadie.  Sadie talks about the dynamics of being queer, Muslim, and black, and the compartmentalization that society tends to impose on a person who has multiple parts of their identity that are marginalized.  It is always vital to ask oneself: What is unconditional acceptance?  Full acceptance of a person’s identity means just that: accepting a person fully.  We loved our conversation with Sadie.  Our one regret is the sound quality (we had some acoustics problems while being “on the road”/mobile as a podcast crew).  However, we think you all will love this episode; also, Sadie’s brand new puppy made a wonderful co-host! Enjoy the episode, and thank you for listening!

Episode 22 in English: Ahmad Danny Ramadan!

We were honored to have Ahmad Danny Ramadan as a guest!  Danny is a Syrian-Canadian novelist, public speaker, columnist, and queer refugee activist.  Danny is the author of the novel The Clothesline Swing, a beautiful tale with multiple interwoven narratives speaking to the queer refugee experiences (balancing individual voices with the shared identities that come from such experiences).  We thank Danny for his wonderful representation of, and contribution to, the MENA queer community.    Listen in to hear some of Danny’s story, as well as a special surprise that he reveals! Thank you all for listening.
