Tajassodat ~ the Zine: A Documentation of A Cross-Regional Convening

Submitted by on – No Comment

We’re very excited to show you what we’ve been up to!

Earlier this year, Qorras and CSBR – Coalition for Sexual and Bodily Rights in Muslim Societies collaborated on organizing a 5-day cross-regional strategic convening, Tajassodat: Conversations to advance Trans Rights and Justice Across Muslim Societies. Tajassodat brought together 23 activists from 13 countries across South Asia, South East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, to discuss various topics, from personal experiences, to collective support, and activism history in these regions.  

As a result of this convening, we’ve put together a Zine, compiling the illustrations that resulted from the conversations on bodily autonomy, self-determination and community organizing of collaborators. Its contents were collected, produced and edited by the organizers and contributors of Tajassodat, with the aim of documenting the 5 days of exchanges, discussions, and personal reflections. The Zine also consists of a visual and written timeline of the convening, as well as other documents that were used. As such, it is an archival document that situates Tajassodat within a year long trajectory of work, exchanges, and solidarity.

We hope that the Zine translates our experiences within the convening to our trans & non-binary peers and allies, as well as the different conversations that we had together about trans and non-binary activism in our regions. 

This work would not have been possible without Tajassodat’s Steering Committee, collaborators, and the support from Hivos and Astraea Foundation. 


With solidarity 

Qorras & CSBR
