Queer Alliances in Times of War

[

Antiracist and anti-/de-colonial activists have struggled, and continue to do so, against the rhetoric of the “War on Terror,” a rhetoric circulated by states and reinvented by femonationalist and homonationalist circles. We see ourselves as part of this political tradition. Yet we also argue that certain approaches that attempt to critique the binary implicit in the framework of a clash of civilizations run the risk of reproducing this same binary framework—albeit oppositionally—by reading current social and political dynamics, movements, and conflicts in the world only through the critique of this so-called clash. The discourse of the “War on Terror” is a binary world ...

الكوخ الهنغاري

[غلاف الكتاب صانع الحلوة للكاتب أزهر جرجيس]

في خريف العام ٢٠٠٦، وصلتُ سيراً على الأقدام إلى هنغاريا. كنتُ وحيداً أمشي على غير هدىً بين الغابات، حتى لاح لي من بعيد خيالُ كوخٍ عتيق. كان كوخاً منفرداً قرب حظيرة للحمير، تنبعث منه رائحة شواء غريبة. أقبلتُ عليه بما بقي لي من همّة، فسمعتُ هتافاً من بعيد: "Stop". توقفتُ حينئذ، ورفعتُ يدَيّ إلى الأعلى في إشارة للتسليم. أقبلتْ نحوي عجوز نحيفة، تحمل بندقية صيد محشوّة. رطنتْ معي بالهنغارية. لم أفهم ما قالتْ، ولولا حفنة الكلمات الإنگليزية التي حفظتُها قبل عشرين عاماً في المدرسة الثانوية، لكنتُ الآن في عداد الموتى. أخبرتُها بأنّي تائه وجائع، وأنّي هارب من الموت، فأخفضت العجوز البندقية عندئذٍ وقالت: اتبعْني. أدخلتني إلى الكوخ، وقدّمتْ لي كبدة دجاج مهروسة بالسمن ...

Taqarub: How one Facebook Page Helped its Founder Find Safety

[Poster from an Iraqi anti-LGBTQ+ violence campaign, reads:

To this day, a statue of Abu Nawwas (756-814 AD) is still standing on an important street running aside the east bank of the Tigris, along with two parks in Baghdad that are named after him. After all, Abu Nawwas was one of the most celebrated Arab poets, who also happened to be unapologetically homosexual. He published a collection of poems that were so homoerotic they were rarely translated into English or any other European language, as they were shocking by European standards*. Abu Nawwas was not the only known homosexual in Iraq’s coloured history. S’aoud el-Imaretly, a beloved Iraqi singer, was a transgender man who got married to women, twice. And then there’s ...
