An Annual Community Event Supporting Palestinian Queers

alQaws Benefit Show x NYC

An Annual Community Event Supporting Palestinian Queers

The Peoples Forum 

320 W 37th St, New York, NY

Wednesday, December 4th

6:00 PM

 

Come join us for a night of performances to raise funds to help bring together and support Palestinian Queers across borders. This past year, alQaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society has seen enormous growth in Palestine in terms of visibility and impact, and at the same time, alQaws leadership has been dealing with vicious societal and state violence since August this year.

 

With everything going on, we are working to expand our network of Palestinians queers across the violent borders that separate us. During this event, we will be launching an exciting fellowship that will serve as a bridge, bringing young LGBTQ+ Palestinians together to grow our community with the mission to provide a space for us to learn from each other and work side by side to combat patriarchy and colonialism!

 

We have an evening full of a remarkable line-up of talented Queer and Trans* performers, including

Mohammed El-Kurd, poetry

Izzaddine Mustafa, stand-up comedy

Mariam Bazeed, music and poetry

With special guests Alsarah from Alsarah and the Nubatones 

…and more performers to be announced soon!

Refreshments will be provided
