Hari Raya Special

Sunday, 14 April 2024 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

This episode of Queering The Air, Sasja reached out to the Queer Melayu community living in Naarm, Ethan and Yazid, inviting them to delve into their thoughts on the importance of Hari Raya in their lives. Together, they explored the nuances of celebrating this cultural festival in their current environment as opposed to their native land, navigating the intersection of tradition and identity. Sasja, in turn, took a moment to introspect on her journey of reconnecting with her roots by participating in Hari Raya festivities with her local community. Through this shared experience, she found solace and camaraderie among her peers, fostering a deeper sense of belonging and understanding within the Queer Melayu diaspora in Naarm. We also welcomed Tiff as a guest who joined the queer Melayu community in Naarm for his first Raya celebration, sharing about his experience.
