Angry Queer Somali Boy

by Mohamed Abdulkarim Ali | Jan 1, 2021

Kidnapped by his father on the eve of Somalia’s societal implosion, Ali was taken first to the Netherlands by his stepmother, and then on to Canada. With its promise of freedom, opportunity and multiculturalism, his new home seemed to offer a new lease on life. But unable to fit in, he turned to partying and drugs. 

Interwoven with world history and sociopolitical commentary on Somalia, Europe and Canada, the story of this gay Muslim immigrant is told with tenderness in a refreshing and welcome new voice.
