Your answer
Are you or have you ever been Muslim? *
Although we plan to feature stories from across the diaspora, PSAC aims to de-center Indian, Hindu, light-skinned, cis, masculine, and upper caste experience. Given this, we would love to know how you describe yourself and your identity. Please note that identifying as any of the above will not prevent you and your story from being featured. *
Your answer
If you are not selected for the *main* staged event, would you be open to sharing your story in another format (ex: a Facebook post, web feature, or poster)? If "yes" or "maybe" are selected, we will contact you via email to chat more. *
