This panel will focus on the challenges of being LGBTQ+ in the MENA (the Middle East and North Africa) region and the lived experiences of our panellists. We will be discussing the main challenges faced by LGBTQ+ people in the region. How does religion intersect with gender identity and sexuality? How has the Covid-19 pandemic affected LGBTQ+ people in the region?
Join us to discuss this and much more, and to bring a better understanding of the lives and issues of the LGBTQ+ population in the region.
