For more information on AqsaZine visit our website, check us out on Facebook: Aqsa Zine or follow us on Twitter or e-mail

AQSAZINE is a grassroots zine for 16-35 year old women and trans people who identify as Muslim. It is a creative avenue to express ourselves, share our experiences, and connect with others.

Making Noise! is an exciting hands-on media arts training that addresses the invisibility and negative portrayals of young Muslim women and trans people in the media, supported by the Urban Alliance on Race Relations.

With thanks to our generous funders: ArtReach Toronto, Freedonia Foundation, Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children, Ontario Women's Directorate and the Urban Alliance on Race Relations.
