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.

Queer Arab Weekly Drop-in Space

Queer Arab Weekly Drop-in Space

Sat, Apr 17, 2021 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4)

Register here.

This is a drop-in space for conversing about our intersectional, Arab, immigrant and marginalized queer experiences.

About this Event

Story-telling and orature have always been a big part of our collective cultures and it is incredibly important that we bring the community together to learn from each other and connect with one another. This space is informal; we can discuss and share issues that are important to our community.

The moderator for this space (Dr. Jad Jaber) will also ensure its safety. Jad is an Arab speaker, so we hope that folks who want to discuss queer issues in Arabic are more than welcome to join. And non-Arab folks who attend should expect to hear Arabic being spoken and written in this space.

We want our community to network and envision themselves as the “Marginalized Queer Majority” that they are.

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