Ramadan Kareem! This time of year is an important time for Muslims. Ramadan is a period of spending time with loved ones. It’s for sharing the iftar with people who are important to you, and supporting each other in fasting. But what to do if you can’t be yourself around family? Or, in Mehdi’s case, your sexuality is not legal? It’s still possible to socialize as a queer person in Morocco, but you have to be careful.
Quite a chunk of the episode got cut because it would have required a bunch of content warnings in for a short section of the show. In this part we talked about a mass outing that happened in Morocco, initiated by someone who is some kind of internet famous. You can read about it through the link in below.
With that out of the way, the internet can still help lonely young queers socialize. Go out there, be safe and hopefully you all have a friend with whom you can share your love for music.
