Womens Magazine – June 27, 2016

As the narrative around the shooting at the gay club in Orlando has shifted from domestic terrorism to the  internalized homophobia of a (possibly) closeted  Muslim man, we look at some of the other narratives surrounding the massacre fanned by the mainstream media, and examine the real history of homosexuality in Islam. Lisa Dettmer talks to Dr. Samar Habib, scholar, researcher and author of many books on sexuality in the Arab world, including Female Homosexuality in the Middle East and Islam and Homosexuality.

And Kate Raphael sits down with long-time SF Mime Troupe performers and collective members Keiko Shimosato Carreiro and Velina Brown, to talk about the history of the troupe, their careers and the new show, SCHOOLED, which debuts next weekend in Berkeley.
