Tarwiha Comic Book Release and Discussion in Jerusalem

alQaws organized an open discussion event today in Jerusalem addressing sexual and gender diversity issues in schools, where we released our recently launched Tarwiha* comic book.

The discussion highlighted the experiences of LGBTQ/queer people in school, exploring Tarwiha both artistically and as an educational platform for bringing these issues to light.

The event started with a queer reading and artistic critique of the comic series, followed by commentary from an education specialist. A conversation then ensued about gender-based violence and alQaws’ field perspective addressing it in recent years.

*Tarwiha is a comic series about school kids living diverse sexual and gender experiences, launched online periodically by alQaws since May 2018.
