#9: Saleem, Eib and Guapa


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.
