Episode 28 in English: Talking with Nadia on Queer MENA Representation in the Media

(This photo is a screenshot of our hangout with each other and our cats during the recording of this episode.)

We had an incredible guest named Nadia Khayrallah on; she is Lebanese-American and based in NYC.  Nadia is a freelance dancer, choreographer, and writer; she also sometimes works on filmmaking.  We had a great conversation with her about representation of queer MENA folks in media (spoiler alert: there needs to be more of it)!  We are excited to have gotten connected with her.  You can check out her work and connect with her here:
