Columbia Queer Alliance Presents 'Coming Out Muslim: Radical Acts of Love'

Join Columbia Queer Alliance and Queer Awareness Month for the play, Coming Out Muslim: Radical Acts of Love, Friday, October 5, 2018 at 6:00PM. The performers are Wazina Zondon and Terna Hamida Tilley-Gyado.  Now more than ever, we must recognize and celebrate all of our identities, especially those that are presumed to be incompatible. As queer and/or Muslim students, this will be a night for strength, healing, and power. As allies, it will be a night to bear witness to the power of stories and to reaffirm our commitment to acting in solidarity with our queer and/or Muslim siblings.
