The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 3: Halal If You Hear Me (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

Edited by Asghar, Fatimah
Edited by Elhillo, Safia

We live in an Islamophobic world, where Muslim people are constantly under attack, and must prove their innocence when they've not even committed a crime. We also live in a world of rigid gender roles and gender violence, where women, gender non-conforming and trans people are vi...ctims of violence, and have their gender expressions, freedoms, and desires policed. There's pressure from both Muslims and non-Muslims to fit into severe stereotypes of Muslim identity and the ways in which it is acceptable to be Muslim. The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 3: Halal If You Hear Me is a celebration of intersectional identity that dispels the notion that there is one correct way to be a Muslim, particularly for women, gender non-conforming, and trans people. In holding space for multiple intersecting identities, the anthology celebrates and protects those identities.
