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 & Trans Arab American artists reveal visions of a thriving, liberated future.

About this event

Through a glittering array of interdisciplinary performances, Queer & Trans Arab American artists will reveal our visions of a thriving, liberated future. Join us as we rage against the stereotyping, violence, and erasure that seek to deny our existence, dream our wildest dreams for ourselves and our loved ones, and revel in the power and beauty in being our fullest, most glorious selves.

Curated by Janine Mogannam and featuring poetry and performance by Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhran, Tarik Dobbs, Andrea Abi-Karam, George Abraham, Mariam Bazeed, Amir Rabiyah, and Fargo Tbakhi.
