Trans Voices on Gaza

Episode Description

As the war in Gaza continues, Imara talks to trans people with valuable perspectives and knowledge from lived experience. First, she’s joined by Palestinian American chef and advocate Marcelle Afram, who shares memories of his family in Palestine, the emotional fallout of October 7, and his advocacy work through Hospitality for Humanity. Then, Imara talks with former New York Times contributing writer Jamie Lauren Keiles about why he left the company in protest of its coverage of Gaza, and how being both Jewish and trans informs the stands he has taken.
