Thank you to everyone who made Season 1 such a success! We're on a brief hiatus while we develop Season 2.The theme for Season 2 is FAMILY-- queer family, queering the notion of family, and being queer family to others. Do you have ideas about what you'd like to hear or whom we could talk to? Drop us a note at https://www.queereverything.com/contact or DM us on Instagram or Twitter!

Join me for the second part of my conversation with Ali and Mohammed, where we talk about telling close family and others and engage in a dialogue about reconciling faith and spirituality. In the introduction I mention Imara Jones' enlightening (and frankly scary) podcast series The Anti-Trans Hate Machine. Please listen to it. It's here: https://translash.org/antitranshatemachine/Find us !Instagram: @queereverythingpodcastTwitter: https://twitter.com/QueerEverythingWebsite: http://www.queereverything.comYouTube: Queer Everything
In this episode I speak with two friends whom I know from an affinity group that I'm a part of: Ali who is Palestinian, and Mohammed who is from Ethiopia. We talk about their journeys around realizing they were queer as young people,  coming to terms with their identities in contexts with few positive messages about LGBTQ people, and navigating telling people who were close to them.Find us !Instagram: @queereverythingpodcastTwitter: https://twitter.com/QueerEverythingWebsite: http://www.queereverything.comYouTube: Queer Everything

In this episode I'm excited to speak with Elika Dadsetan-Foley (she/they), director of VISIONS, Inc. VISIONS is a non-profit diversity, equity, inclusion and organizational cultural change non-profit that I do work with in addition to having my own consulting practice.The theme of this conversation is not queer identity as much as it is the queerness of identity. Elika and I navigate similar tensions: fitting in everywhere and nowhere, being part of a large diaspora from the Muslim world, and the both/neither experience of being first generation immigrants in the US.  We reflect in this conversation about the meaning we've made out of our experiences, including how it's led us to the work that we both do.

Today I speak to the formidable Nicole Joy Alexander, director of the Al-Fitrah Foundation and  Pride Shelter Trust (a project of Al-Fitrah). Pride Shelter is one of the few LGBTQ homeless shelters operating in South Africa, and does incredible work supporting both LGBTQ people who stay there and the broader queer community. Nicole talks about taking over the reins of both organizations as a non-Muslim person, about expanding the community that it serves, and about the incredibly effective programs that the organization has instituted to help people break the cycle of homelessness. They currently have a fundraising initiative underway to help them get the space ready for winter.
