Iranian LGBTQ Mehregan Gathering

We are trying something new this year.

Raha is partnering with chef and visual artist, Parisa Parnian, to give us a different perspective on what it means to be LGBTQ. We come from a very rich culture, but one that is also very rigid and leaves very little space for LGBTQ identity. Queering the Persian palate is an artistic expression to show that we are not bystanders in our culture, but active participants in bringing about change. Just as our LGBTQ presence changes and opens the culture, so does the food that we make and eat.

If you like the traditional foods, don’t worry we will still have those. This is a chance to try something old or try something new all in a space where you can just be you!

We’ve got a space saved for you! We can’t wait to see you.
