Hosted by our resident queer Muslim Accessibility Coordinator & Healthcare Coordinator, Aaminah Shakur, this is a low-key drop-in Zoom hang-out for Eid.
Please feel free to bring poetry, nasheeds, or whatever else you desire. The purpose of this space is to provide a welcoming & affirming place for Queer Muslims to be authentically their whole selves, in whatever way that looks and sounds. If you need to destress/decompress from mainstream Eid gatherings, we hope you find this space a comfort. If you miss attending Eid gatherings or have never been able to participate in them because of your queerness, we hope you find this space comforting and safe.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link. You may also direct questions to Aaminah.
Some accessibility & safety notes: Zoom captions will be enabled, but unfortunately, ASL will not be available. You are welcome to choose for yourself whether to have your camera on or off, to use blurring or other background obscuring choices on camera, and to mute and/or use the chat function to communicate (the primary host is non-verbal & will use the chat exclusively). Folks are welcome to eat, drink, etc., on camera. You are also welcome to drop in, out, & back into the session.
