Episode 53 in English: She He Me

Raphael Khouri, a playwright who lives in Germany, is in Vienna at the moment for their play, She He Me, to be shown at the Kosmos Theater!  The Jordanian playwright is bringing such important queer (specifically trans) Arab representation to theater.  It was truly an honor to talk to Raphael, and we love the work they’re doing.  Thank you all for listening!  To get in touch with Raphael, you can email them at [email protected] and/or connect with them on Facebook (Raphaël Aimé Khouri) and Instagram @raphael_khouri.

The play will be performed from March 1 to March 16!

Episode 52 in English: Fleeting Acts in Beirut

We talked to the incredibly talented gay Lebanese photographer, Munir Abdallah, based in Beirut.  This conversation is what has really inspired Ellie to genuinely want to visit Lebanon for the first time in her adult life.  Munir’s candidness and openness about queer life in Beirut was very cathartic to hear about and talk about.  Munir has photographed queer beauty in the form of sexual expression.  Munir celebrates the beauty of the nude human form, and his photography is very direct and feels liberating to look at.  His recent exhibition, “Fleeting Acts,” received many positive and appreciative responses in Beirut.  Follow Munir on Instagram @munir.a.abdallah.
