Episode 24 in English: Helem’s Joseph Aoun!

The word helem means dream in Arabic.  In this episode, we had a very informative and meaningful conversation with Joseph Aoun, who is the coordinator of the Helem Community Center in Beirut.  Helem is a Lebanese non-profit working on improving the legal & social status of LGBT folks. Helem is the first LGBT advocacy group in the Arab world.  We thank Joseph for talking to us and for the important work he has been doing!

Episode 21: The gang does a podcast!

The four of us are all finally in one episode together! We thought it was about time to introduce the English side of our podcast to the Arabic side.  Kilian Colin and Ahmed are the co-hosts of the Arabic language episodes of this podcast.  So far, two Arabic episodes have been published, and we have already seen from the listeners that there is quite a need for this.  We are so grateful to have Ahmed and Kilian, and it makes the podcast feel much more complete.  In this episode, Ahmed & Kilian talk about growing up in the Middle East, about why Arabic episodes are important, and much more.
