I found learning about her culture and experiences coming to the US interesting. Although I was interested in learning about the Muslim religion, there was too much of it in the book for my taste.

Absolutely phenomenal! The way Lamya writes about queerness and faith, drawing parallels and comparisons between the two, as well as exploring how both are a massive part of her life, is beautiful and introspective. This is one I both learned so much from, related to, and will definitely recommend.

audio nonfiction/memoir (7.5 hours) - genderqueer hijabi she/they who likes women writes about her life before/after immigrating to the US for college and her adult life, along with her feminist interpretation of Quran stories (semi-familiar because of similarities to Old Testament stories) and her experiences with racism, colorism, Islamaphobia, homophobia, etc.

very readable, with excellent narration. Lamya is funny and likeable, and her stories are relatable even if you've never had to navigate a new country as a queer, brown-skinned hijabi.… (mer)

I thought this would be interesting but it is powerful and beautiful. Lamya H not only addresses the challenge of being butch as a Muslim, but also being a person of color who deals with racism, xenophobia, and yet who chooses to live in love and justice.
