A LOT OF FEELINGS AND IDEAS TRANSLATED BY COLOURS
Acrylics on Cartoon/2022
I created these two artworks along with an article I wrote for Untold Stories for the LGBTQ-themed Syrian Queer in the Syrian Cultural Landscape.
The article talks about how I, as a queer, see gender non-stereotypical characters in Syrian literature. I drew on the character of (Hafsa) in the play Rituals of Signs and Transformations by Saadallah Wannous. And the last painting is about two women making love from The Evil Poem of Nizar Qabbani
Are you like me, dear bamboo, queer and a refugee?
Being at the intersection of queer and refugee in a new country means that one has few friends. I used to go to the forest when times were rough, and I developed a new relationship with nature which enabled me to reconcile with my body. Nature helped me accept my body more and offered me the courage to assume my real gender identity as a man. On my nature strolls, I observed the details around me, and as they reflected positively on me, I felt acceptance. There are no classifications here, everything exists as it is, and each thing has its role. There are no evaluations and standardizations in the forest and there is a place for everyone.

Challenges facing women in relation to the Syrian political context
The more i learn, the more feminist i become. It is imposible for who studies sociology and history not to be a feminist. Therefore, my artistic works now are serving the goals that I believe in most as a feminist transman.
My latest work, of which I am sharing drawings here. It is about documenting the role of Syrian women in political action and the impact of the war on it. This file was with the @syrianfeminishttps://www.instagram.com/p/ClGLKvAI8Q0/tlobby
