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 Khaleeji Safe Space

Queer Khaleeji Safe Space

Tickets here.

About this event

Marginalized Majority is hosting a drop-in facilitated by @bur27 to highlight the voices of Queer Khaleejis

This is a space for Khaleejis which includes Iraqis, Yemenis and migrants of the Khaleeji and anyone who is curious about the Khaleej is welcomed. But please be careful about not taking up too much space if you are not part of the Khaleeji voices mentioned.

This space will be moderated by Khaleeji speakers, so folks who want to discuss issues in Arabic are more than welcome to join. Non-Khaleeji folks who attend should expect to hear Khaleeji-Arabic being spoken and written in the space.

We are extremely critical about the safety of this space and will guide participants on how they can remain anonymous if they choose.


To register, please send an email to to connect with our facilitator and founder to join this beautiful space.

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.
