Episode 64: Noon Fest, Part 1 – Meet Erkxn

Noon Festival in Berlin has begun!  This is Germany’s first festival centering queer, of colour and Muslim identity.  It started on May 15 and will continue until the 31st!  Erkxn Affan has been organizing this along with be’kech Berlin, and Erkxn curated the festival.  It was wonderful talking to them and hearing about their background, about the importance of having a festival like this in Berlin specifically, and more. 

Coinciding both with the Holy Month of Ramadan and Queer History Month, all proceeds of this festival will be going towards the Black & Pink Crescent: an NGO supporting incarcerated queer and trans Muslims of color. Check out their work here: https://masjidalrabia.org/the-black-pink-crescent
