Show Notes

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.
