NO SUMMARY: Queering Our Middle Eastern Identities
Online conversations with artists that don’t fit in a box
Golden Thread Productions presented NO SUMMARY: Queering Our Middle Eastern Identities livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 23 April 2021 at 11 a.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 1 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 2 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).
In an already complicated landscape of Middle Eastern identities, holding up our queerness can prove a challenge. Three artists and one mother discuss how they have navigated these terrains, integrating them in their life and work. Kenan Arun is a Turkish makeup designer and Golden Thread resident artist, as well as the Director of Operations at The LGBT Asylum Project. Amin El Gamal is an Egyptian American actor active in theatre, film, and television. Humaira Ghilzai is an Afghan American writer, activist, and cultural advisor for theatre, film, and television. Iranian American Sara Razavi, CEO of non-profit lending entity Working Solutions and Golden Thread resident artist, will facilitate.
