Unarchiving Hidden LGBTQ+ Global South Stories for Arab Communities

About this Event
This weekend we will be looking at stories that are often taboo-ed or hidden in the name of preserving traditional Arab cultural values. We will be queer-ing (portions) of Arab history and opening the floor for others to participate. Such stories often include Arab folks that were perceived to be breaking the gendered and patriarchal norms and were therefore archived into oblivion. We know we can never do justice to the millions of voices and souls forgotten by Arab history, but we can try to represent what we can and inspire others to do their own “un-archiving”.
