Episode 17: A Journalist in Cairo

Last updated on June 23, 2018


Meet Allison Washington, a journalist living in Cairo.  We had an absolutely wonderful time talking with her.  During this episode, Allison speaks about what it is like for people on the queer spectrum in the Middle East, her writing, what brought her to Cairo (in addition to the plane) and more.  Allison’s writing is absolutely mesmerizing, compelling, and informative.  We were honored to have her on our podcast, and are thankful to our friend Marie who introduced us.  See her latest piece here about the roles police play in violence against trans women in the west and in the Middle East.

Here is the map that Allison referenced during her episode:
