Reya Ahmed, Kolkata

Reya is a 24-year-old visual artist exploring feminism, queer identity and her experiences of growing up in a Bengali-Muslim household through an interdisciplinary crossroad of illustration, animation, architectural and editorial design. At present, she is core organizer and curator at The Queer Muslim Project, one of the largest global online networks of LGBTIQ+ Muslims. 

The Queer Muslim Monthly is a resistance against the invisibility of intersectional identities and attempts to dismantle the idea of a newspaper as a source of information which often tends to leave out issues, concerning the most marginalized. It will collate art projects, art installations, video installations, comics, illustrations, interviews of and by Queer Muslim artists in the form of an online, graphic newspaper.
