Writer and photographer Samra Habib was only 16 when she married her cousin (not by choice). Now she's here to talk about her memoir, "We Have Always Been Here," which follows Samra as she fights to free herself from various oppressive forces in her life, from faith to family to "straight expectations." In this ep, Samra also chats about the Queer Muslim Photo Project, her ongoing photo series that grapples with what it means to be Muslim and queer. Because queer Muslims have always been here; they just haven't always been visible.
