Ghadir Shafie

Ghadir is a Palestinian feminist who dedicates her work and activism to the cause of Palestinian queer women and to promoting a greater understanding of – and commitment to – the issue of Palestine amongst fellow activists and stakeholders. Ghadir passionately believes in the intersectionality of the struggle of Palestinian queer women. Fighting a triple oppression – as Palestinians, as women and as LGBTQI people, Palestinian queer women are at the heart of the feminist, queer and anti-colonial national liberation causes. Through her work and activism, Ghadir endeavors to make this intersection visible and to unite the feminist, queer and Palestine liberation movements in a monumental struggle for justice and freedom to all Palestinians. Ghadir is the co-director of Aswat – Palestinian Gay Women.
