Shroukie: Dancing Queer
Shroukie is an electronics engineer from Egypt. She’s also an asylum seeker who successfully fought the Home Office for the right to go to university AND she’s a bearded belly dancer who campaigns for LGBTQ+ rights back home
This the story of a rich and privileged girl who never returned home after her London holiday, who found herself alone and estranged from her family in Cardiff and someone who fought too hard to be an engineer to let herself be seen as merely an award winning queer activist.
She’s building a new life in Bristol but where is home? How can she manage her feelings of guilt, anger, doubt and joy?
