“I acknowledge my mother’s open heart. Shokaria, Ammi, for supporting, and being part of, this zine making. I thank you for giving me permission to share our vulnerable and intimate conversations. I hope that this zine will be a way for other Urdu-english speakers in similar relationships to feel supported when discussing identities around Queerness.” farha najah, excerpt from “پیاری سی امی میں کویر ہوں – A Love Letter To My Mom” zine.
Zine title inspired by “Rewriting the Script: A Love Letter To Our Families” (2001), available on youtube.
Copies available for purchase @ L’Euguélionne, librairie féministe and Zines fests I attend.
