Feroza Syed speaks about her experiences as a transgender Muslim, her transition, and what made her go public with her history. Adoption discrimination against LGBTQi+ couples is the anti motherhood story we know will touch us today.
We learn terms, more about unmosqueing marginalized Muslims, and how we can be better allies to our momsisters and their kids from all walks of life.
