We had a wonderful conversation with Amuna, an activist and entrepreneur in the UAE. Amuna is a Queer Black Arab woman who founded the Black Arabs Collective, a space for sharing stories and amplifying voices of Black Arabs. We discussed how racism in the SWANA region is pervasive and underacknowledged. We also talked about Amuna’s experience as a queer woman in Dubai who grew up in a religious family. You’ll catch a bit of the call to prayer from the mosque next door to Amuna as we have a beautiful, gay conversation on this episode. (We also chatted about Tinder, quarantine fashion, and more!)
