So I'm a 1st gen American citizen coming from Egyptian heritage. When I first found this site I was really excited and ready to jump in and try and work towards some activism or do something to help myself and others feel more of a comfort in our identity as queer MENA folx. I'm looking back now and feeling a lot like I rushed in, like I didn't really take the time to understand and even meet my own community, you all. So I guess I'm just posting to try and meet some folx, tell me about yourself, lets be friends, and I feel with more and more community I'll be able to learn about us and take into account what we all need so we can be what we all need and want, community. Hopefully a soon to be strong one. Sending out positive and warm energy to all who stumble on this, send me a message :-). .
