New Writings on Eid and Ramadan in Azaan

Azaan features the voices of MASGD community members, who share their experiences and reflections of life as LGBTQ+ Muslims today.

  • In "The Map of Queer Iftars," writer Jordan Alam, a queer Bangladeshi American writer, performer, and birth worker based out of south Seattle, reflects on the experience of traveling across the country and finding community along the way.

  • In "Consider the Ummah," Yusef Bornacelli, a taqwacore muslim queer trans* activist and artist of color, shares their experience of learning about Ramadan as a new convert—and then relearning the meaning of Ramadan after finding queer Muslim community.

  • In "The Fold," ociele hawkins, a Black nonbinary queer femme organizer, poet, and performer from Philadelphia, writes about converting at 15 in the middle of Ramadan, surrounded by a tight group of friends navigating life and death and faith.
