Narrated by Sudanese artist Ahmed Umar and with illustrations by Mohammed Abd El-Hadi of Jordan, They Call Me Asylum Seeker is a web-based interactive experience that follows four LGBTQ people from the Egyptian Revolution in 2011 to the migrant and refugee “crisis” in Europe today. Weaving together an audio documentary with stylized animations, interactive features allow audiences to explore chapters of the story at their own pace.

 

They Call Me Asylum Seeker is part of Queer in a Time of Forced Migration , an animated transmedia series that follows the stories of LGBTQ refugees from Egypt, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia across continents and cultures — from the 2011 Revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa region to the world today.
