The Collective Creating a Safer Space for Queer Arabs

  • Iman El Kafrawi

Commissioned by BRICKS magazine - The Rise Together Issue

Berlin-based collective Queer Arab Barty is a dynamic, safer space, encouraging the exploration of queer Arab identities and the subversion of mainstream attempts to homogenise queer Arabs in Berlin and beyond. More than a dance party, they are a platform encouraging self-expression and conversations. I spoke to the collective and we explored, identity, queer visibility and how to create safe spaces.

We speak to the collective to explore identity, visibility and safer spaces. This article originally appeared in BRICKS ‘The Rise Together Issue’
