Help this Queer SWANA Research Project

Note: This is not a Tarab NYC Research project – this project belongs to a member of the greater community.

Amita Khurana, a queer Palestinian-Indian researcher is conducting their Master’s thesis about queer SWANA spaces in New York City and is looking for research participants that identify as queer and SWANA and who attend queer SWANA spaces/events. If interested, please fill out this 5 minute survey.

You will be asked to participate in a short survey questionnaire about your demographics and whether you have attended queer SWANA (Southwest Asia and North Africa) social spaces in New York City to determine eligibility for a follow-up interview. If you are selected, you will also be asked to participate in a Zoom interview about your experiences, identity, and political actions. You can agree to take part in this study now and change your mind later. Your answers will only be shared with the lead researcher (Amita Khurana). Participants can remove themselves from this study at any time. For more information, email
