The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

Q&A: Islamic Shia Art and Queer Identity with Nabi H. Ali

About this event

This event will be a Q&A session with Nabi Haider Ali.

Nabi Haider Ali is a Tamil Shi’a Muslim artist based in California. He is a children’s book illustrator and freelance visual development artist. In his free time, he creates illustrations and handicrafts focused on Shi’i iconography and considers this practice to be a hands-on meditation for him.

Queer Shia identities are often erased in queer, Muslim and Shia community. Nabi shatters this stereotype with his art, and will be talking to us about his experiences as a Queer Shia artist.

Join us this Thursday, at 6:30 PM EDT for a Q&A with Nabi!

Please note that by registering to our spaces, you will also be informed of the upcoming series of Marginalized Majority’s intersectional workshops. Kindly email us at operations.mmajority@gmail.com if you would not like to receive this information.
