Beautiful portraits showcase hidden queer Muslim identities

For years, Samra Habib kept relatively quiet when it came to her identity. It can be hard for LGBT Muslims to find acceptance in a community that does not hold consistently tolerant views on same-sex equality.

But Habib will stay say silent no longer. Picking up her camera, the young photographer has begun an “aesthetically engaging” and “culturally demanding” project designed to finally bring needed visibility of the queer Muslim community to the world.

"Just Me and Allah" is a photography project originally created on Tumblr, but which will be in exhibition at a handful of locations in Toronto — the Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives, Videofag Gallery and Parliament Street Library — in conjunction with WorldPride, beginning June 20.

Intimate photos of agender youth challenge society’s gender norms

"I think a lot of people like to see gender as this scale of blue and pink," Emma, a 20-year-old college student, told the magazine. "I never really identified with either side of that, or even in between blue and pink. It’s so much more complicated — my identity varies so much on any given day. Sometimes I tell people I’m gold or something."

I appreciate that it includes a bit from the original article, which clarifies:

"This growing community encompasses people who see themselves as agender (neither male nor female), bi-gender (both genders) and gender-fluid (shifting from male to female)."

Yesgood but genderfluid people don’t necessarily shift from male to female; any gender shift counts; they don’t ever need to actually hit the 100% male or 100% female marker at any point.

Hey guys.

So this is Walker and that’s Eliot, and they’re the main characters of the book I’m writing. Aren’t they cool? Don’t you want to hang out with them?

Guess what? You totally can, because my book is currently a project on Inkshares, which means that you can help…

A friend of mine if writing a novel. It’s pretty awesome. Please help her out, if you can (if you can’t give money, at least give this a reblog).

(Also, sorry to be MIA. Two words: Grad School. Will try to revive this soon.)

New Suit, New Tie, New Haircut.

It’s hard for me to look right at the camera, so I’m trying to make myself do that a little more. Well, okay—it isn’t looking at the camera so much as looking at the picture itself, looking at myself frozen and full on. It’s not like looking in a mirror. There’s something less familiar about it. It’s almost like hearing my own voice recorded—it’s strange, foreign, a little uncomfortable. “Really, do I look like that?” I think. Yeah, I suppose I do.

And I think I’m starting to be okay with that.
