In this profile of Jahleel, they share their experience as someone who intersects with the black, Muslim, and LGBTQ+ communities. They help to give us a better understanding of what it means to be a queer, Muslim youth of color in Atlanta, as well as their more personal story as someone navigating school, art, activism, and life with their complex intersectionality.
About this series:
What are the voices we're not hearing? In My Comment, we follow the thoughts and ideas of teens who aren't getting representation or the platform to be heard. This is our effort to highlight authentic ideas and narratives as told by the people most important in these stories: the teens themselves. We're hoping to find the most unique perspectives that aren't being heard in the media and get them out in the world so that more people can connect with these subcultures and identities.
