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.

This session helps participants in seeing our community as one while focusing on the individual journeys and paths we experience: it highlights how we can regenerate individually and collectively, and presents emotional best practices to avoid isolation and finding our community. There are many subjects from our LGBTQIA2S+ experience that we cannot discuss safely. We feel alienated from both heterosexual culture and queer culture. The Queer Regeneration session allows participants to discuss and develop the themes of marginalized queer folks together as well as connect and collect with like-minded individuals.

Subjects discussed during the session include: our automatic emotional coping mechanisms, the cultural history of “self-work”, queer-antined during COVID, migrating homophobia, survivor’s remorse, acceptance versus tolerance, the queer ego, global south parents, the “worry” language, collective coming in experiences, the imposter syndrome, the language of activism and cancel culture.
