The De-Otherize Dialogue Project's goal is to spark connection and collaboration across borders to build global solidarity. Our designs are created by or in collaboration with Queer refugees from the Middle East for economic empowerment.  

This design was created in collaboration with Mehdi (he/him):
A Palestinian Syrian calligrapher, theater actor and Arabic teacher who now lives in Istanbul as a refugee. His passions are writing and making people happy through story telling.
