Hasan Namir In Conversation says
Author of the groundbreaking and acclaimed novel God In Pink joins us for a reading and in-depth conversation on creativity, writing, sexuality and religion. Lali Mohamed will be our host and facilitator as Hasan Namir, a Muslim gay man originally from Iraq, shares his insights, challenges and hopes for the future.

"I think it reflects a bit of my own life, because I had this conflict of religion—conflict of culture—and my sexuality. There’s what God says and what people say God says, and there’s no real right or wrong. It’s what you believe, and what you take from that religion, so I really wanted to highlight that in the novel, to show this nuance between religion and between culture and identity. And that’s something that, over the years, meeting gay Muslims, I learned myself." - Hasan Namir
