Since October 2019, people in Lebanon have been protesting corruption, climate denial, big finance and government ineptitude. Where does that work stand now? Laura talks with Lebanese activist/artist Dayna Ash who runs one of the few safe spaces for LGBTQI+ people and women in the region about her experience of organizing in a melt-down.
Music in the Middle: “Drown Out the Other”, featuring Danya Ash and her collaborator Nour Sokhon courtesy of the artists.
