Birmingham South Asians LGBT – Finding A Voice will be hosting their monthly get together at Matchbox Cafe 16/09/2015 6:30pm. This month’s roundtable discussion will be focused on the Muslim Drag Queens documentary, which debuted on CH4 last Monday.
The documentary starred Asifa Lahore, Zareena Khan and Ibrahim (who kicked off Gaysian Faces).
About 30 minutes into the documentary, #MuslimDragQueens started trending on twitter. Khakan Qureshi, founder of Finding A Voice, will be facilitating the roundtable discussion. Besides discussing and debating, you’ll also get a chance to make new friends and network with the Gaysian community in Birmingham.
“A Jihad For Love” filmmaker Parvez Sharma is crowdfunding for his new documentary “A Sinner In Mecca” which he hopes will be seen in cinemas around the world. One of the pillars in Islam is to go to Hajj, Parvez goes to Mecca; but as an openly gay man. He calls this a “Saudi Selfie Film” where he takes you on his journey.
Salim’s Secret is a children’s book, written by Noor Ramadani. It’s about a young boy coming out to his parents. We absolutely fell in love with the illustrations. Noor was inspired to write the book after coming across a young boy from the “Human’s of New York” page. The young boy expressed fears about being homosexual. The picture amplified so much love and support for the child.
Noor is an English teacher and resides in Indonesia. Salim’s Secret is free for campaign use.
