In the aftermath of the #SanBernardino shooting, we've both been thinking and writing. Be sure to check out our pieces:
This past week the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim team was on the road for the Muslim Funny Fest in New York City. The festival was great - there were some amazing comedians that had us laughing and cringing. Our very own Zahra did an awesome set on the second day of the festival - and you can check it out right here. Watch, laugh, enjoy! Thanks to the organizers of the event for creating a much needed space.
And stay tuned for our New YorK City podcast which will be uploaded very very soon!
Zahra and Taz are coming to New York City, and we need you to LAUGH!
Join us at the Asian American Writers Workshop on Thursday, July 23rd at 7pm to be a part of the studio audience for the recording of Episode #7 of the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast!
You are promised an evening of conversation and laughter as the quirky yet controversial duo of the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast record a live show for their next episode from the heart of the Big Apple. Stay tuned as co-hosts Zahra Noorbakhsh and Taz Ahmed declare fatwas, creep Sharia and hand out Good Muslim awards. The show will be recorded. As is all of their conversations. Stick around for the Q&A Aftershow, moderated by Deepa Crash of the Good Cha Podcast. Co-sponsored by the Mipsterz - Muslim Hipsters, Muslim Writers Collective, Brown Girl Magazine, & South Asian Women's Creative Collective - SAWCC.
BONUS - if you want to laugh even MORE, catch Zahra doing standup at the Muslim Funny Fest on July 22nd! You can get tickets for the show right here at this link.
Next time, on the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast we talk about another twitter hashtag inspired art installation - The #MuslimVDay Cards! Initially started in 2011, Taz Ahmed painted her favorite hashtags into Valentines Day cards and mailed them out to her friends. Every year since then, she's been creating a series of six uniquely and politically charged punny cards. The cards set out to disrupt the narrative and make people think twice about the islamophobic rhetoric that exists - all while spreading love with cheeky snarky humor. Check out her full interview at Colorlines here.
It is that time of the year again, and you can now buy your own set of #MuslimVDay cards! Pictured above is the latest #MuslimVDay 2015 set, but all four sets (for a total of 24 different images) are available for purchase at TazzyStar's Etsy Shop. Check out the shop and buy your cards here!
And stay tuned for the next the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast out in early February.
