NAFS.SPACE

NAFS.SPACE is a unique platform to promote queer artists. Their mission is to create an online safe space for the SWANA queer community to explore and showcase their talent, allowing others to see and buy their creations. NAFS.SPACE’s vision is to give a platform to SWANA creative queers offering them guidance and exposure.

Here’s what they had to say about their platform:

“Stemming from Egyptian roots, born and raised in Copenhagen and now living in London, the founder of NAFS.SPACE, Andrew Farid Demetry, has worked in both the fashion and art industry across the Nordics and London, only to constantly be discriminated against for being either gay, Arab, and sometimes both. Never feeling safe and having to deal with homophobia and racism in the workplace, it was time to take matters into their own hands.

After speaking to peers that have had similar experiences, it became apparent that there is an opportunity in providing such a platform for this group. The Arab culture has and continues to be stigmatized as aggressive and intolerant, particularly towards the queer community.”

NAFS.SPACE creates a community of acceptance and opportunity to network, providing freedom for expression and drawing in resources from each member.
