Wazina Zondon is a Muslim-identified Afghan woman. She teaches sex education and speaks about the intersection of homophobia and Islamaphobia. She is the Co-founder of Coming Out Muslim: Radical Acts of Love, a storytelling performance with Terna.
Coming Out Muslim: Radical Acts of Love, captures stories and experiences of being at the intersections of Islam and queerness and its relationship to family, lovers, one’s sense of self and relationship with our faith. Terna and Wazina utilize traditional storytelling and conversation as the medium for exploring the broad range of their experiences as queer Muslims. The stories Coming Out Muslim tell range from tales about other people’s theories about where queerness comes from, the gifts of being queer and Muslim, the tension between one’s culture and religion, and love—romantic and spiritual. Coming Out Muslim is both funny and poignant.
