Episode 160 [in English]: Creating (Dis)content & Coalitions with the UC Davis MENASA Student Resources

Huge thank you to the UC Davis MENASA Resources Center (@ucdavismenasa) for having us as guest speakers!

Following our presentation on the (brief) history our podcast, what we’ve learned along the way, and an overview of queer organizing in the SWANA region, we recorded a live Q&A with some awesome attendees.  

Our discussion included pre- and post-9-11 racial perceptions of us as Arabs in the US, finding queer SWANA and Muslim community (in various locales and online), what brings us Queer Arab joy (from cooking to listener DMs to messy chosen families).

Episode 10: Vibrancy and Intersectionality

Our guest on this episode is the fabulous Naushaba Patel, a Pakistani American who embraces themself in a beautiful, genuine way.  We spoke about their navigation toward accepting every part of themself and living an honest life (as we can all relate to in various ways).  It was an absolutely lovely time with Naushaba.  Listen to this episode to hear about all of the important work Naushaba has been doing.  Pakistani and Arab cultures have many commonalities, and we discussed that too.  Thank you for listening, and thank you to Naushaba for being on our 10th episode (yay – we’re now in the double digits)!
