Samra Habib

Overview

Often repressed in their ancestral homelands and mistrusted in the West, few groups are less represented in the media than queer Muslims. Now we can hear the personal story of someone at the intersection of these two complicated identities.

Samra Habib is a world-renowned journalist, photographer, and activist, known for her photography project Just Me and Allah, in which she represents the narratives and experiences of queer Muslims around the world. In her memoir, Habib tells the story of coming to terms with her identity as a queer woman and a Muslim in a world which regards both as 'Other.'

Through her recollections of childhood and young adulthood alongside reflections on the present, the author takes us deep into her world. With an intelligent, kind, and deeply personal take on intersectional feminism, LGBTQIA rights, and spirituality, We Have Always Been Here is much more than a coming out story.

Favorite Quote

"Not everyone is equipped for activism in the traditional sense - marching, writing letters to officials - but dedicating your life to understanding yourself can be its own form of protest, especially when the world tells you that you don't exist."
