On this episode, The Queer Arabs talk to two members (Liane and Tamim) of Queer Arabs of Halifax! It was so much fun talking to our Arab-Canadian friends; we had a blast. Queer Arabs of Halifax is a group that was started by Liane, and this group has become a family for queer Arabs in Halifax. They have fun (dance parties – can it get better than that?) and they also address important issues, such as pinkwashing.
Some additional info related to that topic is here:
Tamim mentioned Queers Against Apartheid in the episode, and you can find out more about that here:
Liane and Tamim discussed what happened at the Halifax Pride AGM in 2016, and you can read more about that here:
The Coup at the Pride Meeting
It’s been incredible to connect with this group, and we foresee dance parties happening together someday. We feel so fortunate to have this friendship!
