WHO WE ARE
Awarded the Cosmopolitan India Blogger Awards for ‘LGBTQIA+ Voice of the Year 2022’, The Queer Muslim Project (TQMP) is Asia’s leading online platform for queer, Muslim and allied voices, with a growing global community of over 40,000 people. We use art, culture, media, and storytelling to challenge harmful stereotypes and norms, build power and visibility of underserved LGBTQIA+ artists and storytellers, and enable them to shape their own narratives.
WHAT WE DO
We use digital media, storytelling and artistic production to re-narrate public conceptions of queerness in a way that makes visible the diversity of queer lived experiences in the region and transcends intentional misrepresentation and socially-reinforced stereotypes.
We are currently building a pipeline of underrepresented queer talent from South Asia through artist development programmes, content creation, campaigns, research, and showcasing opportunities.
