*an alternative to using middle east; swana (south west Asian and north African) shout out to Edan and Pouneh for pointing out to me the issues revolved around the terminology and ways to refer to Africa)


A final note fuck cops: All police. Not only are pigs haram, but on a more serious note their may be good people but never good cops because of their job structure and having to enforce all laws including unjust ones, the harm and violence that police initiate is inexcusable.

Episode 37 in English: Mark for Redaction!

This episode was recorded during the weekend we went to NYC for Mark for Redaction at Flux Factory.  This is a queer MENA art exhibit that we got to experience.  Join us for a slice of the beautiful surroundings we found ourselves in.  The art brought us all together and we all felt so understood and the deepest sense of belonging.  We are honored to have been part of something this profound and meaningful.  Please check this event out in person if you are in NYC this weekend!
