AQSAzine #3 launches tomorrow
QSAzine Issue #3, My Islam, is launching tomorrow at the Art Gallery of Ontario (317 Dundas St. W., Toronto), from 6-8 p.m.
The free event will showcase videos, visual art, dance and readings by young Muslim and trans people, including: Azza Abbaro, Golie Moulaie, Samira Mohyeddin, Nooreen Rahemtullah, Wilo Mohammed, Farrah Khan, and Areen Khaled. Secret Trial Five will perform, and the event will be hosted by Idil Hyder and May El-Abdallah.
From the press release: “AQSAZINE is a grassroots zine for 16-35 year old women and trans people who identify as Muslim. It is a creative avenue to express ourselves, share our experiences, and connect with others.” The My Islam After Party (with yummy food and music!) is happening at Beaver Hall Artists’ Co-operative, 29 McCaul St., from 8 p.m.
Shameless is profiling AQSAzine in our new fall issue, which should be out in August.
