The Queer Arabs Posts

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.

Episode 21: The gang does a podcast!

The four of us are all finally in one episode together! We thought it was about time to introduce the English side of our podcast to the Arabic side.  Kilian Colin and Ahmed are the co-hosts of the Arabic language episodes of this podcast.  So far, two Arabic episodes have been published, and we have already seen from the listeners that there is quite a need for this.  We are so grateful to have Ahmed and Kilian, and it makes the podcast feel much more complete.  In this episode, Ahmed & Kilian talk about growing up in the Middle East, about why Arabic episodes are important, and much more.
