In this episode we hear from Saleem Haddad, author of Guapa. Saleem explores his Palestinian identity through storytelling and discusses shaming, grandmothers, and politics. Saleem recounts his experience coming out to his family and the difficulties with being a gay man in the Middle East.


You can learn more about Saleem's book Guapa or read his article in Slate magazine. We'd highly recommend reading Guapa, and we've come up with five reasons why on our blog! Happy listening!
