Queering Desi

01-06-2019 • 27 mins

We're kicking off Pride month with several new episodes! First up, we have Fatimah Asghar, a poet, filmmaker, educator and performer. Priya asks Fatimah about Brown Girls, an Emmy-Nominated web series that highlights friendships between women of color. Later, they chat about Fatimah's debut book of poems, If They Come For Us, the elusive idea of home, and ancestral trauma. The episode wraps with Fatimah's advice to her younger self, and what's coming next for her.

You can follow Fatimah on Twitter and Instagram (@asgharthegrouch) and learn more about her work at www.fatimahasghar.com. Full bio and show notes also available on www.queeringdesi.com!
