The Third Muslim: Queer and Trans* Muslim Narratives of Resistance and Resilience
THE THIRD MUSLIM: QUEER AND TRANS* NARRATIVES OF RESISTANCE AND RESILIENCE
The Third Muslim: Queer and Trans* Narratives of Resistance and Resilience is a multimedia exhibition that explores the intersections of Islamophobia, gender-based oppression, and racism (including colorism and anti-Black bias). The Third Muslim emphasizes self-representation from those often denied the right to narrate their own stories, building a multi-sensory archive of work that highlights struggles spanning displacement, diaspora and hyphenated identities. The Alternative Exposure grant will support the East Bay presentation of the exhibition, after its debut at San Francisco’s SOMArts Cultural Center Curatorial Residency Program. Co-curated by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Yas Ahmed.
