Location: 
Middle East Center of UPenn

The Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region is incredibly diverse-- and its LGBTQ communities are just as heterogeneous. How does queer subjectivity differ across the region? What are the challenges to local and international LGBTQ rights organizing in the Middle East? While the case of Queer Palestine will serve as a key area of discussion, this lecture, presented by Sa’ed Atshan, will also address the broader regional context.
