One More Thing with Jaye & Robert

Coming Out Muslim (with Wazina Zondon)

July 9, 2018

Following our interview with Rev. Micah Bucey last season, today we talk to educator and storyteller Wazina Zondon about queerness and Islam! She tells us about growing up a queer Muslim girl who wore capes emphasis on the capes), and then we discuss what the Quran actually says about queerness (hint: not much.) She also introduces us to some cool queer-friendly places of Islamic worship and tells us about her performance piece Coming Out Muslim: Radical Acts of Love.

This episode contains brief mentions of pedophilia.
