Queering Identity: Neema Avashia (Part I)

Queer Everything

Jan 14 2022 • 42 mins

In this episode, I speak to Boston-based educator, author and activist Neema Avashia about her experiences growing up as a person of Indian origin in West Virginia, how she's navigated living at the crossroads of different cultures, and about exploring her identity through writing.

Neema's forthcoming book Another Appalachia: Coming Up Queer and Indian in a Mountain Place will be available from West Virginia University Press on March 1, 2022.

You can learn more about Neema and check out some of her writing at her website, www.neemaavashia.com, and you can find her on Twitter at @AvashiaNeema.
