We Have Always Been Here – Samra Habbib
Atgof llawn gobaith, ffydd a chariad, mae stori Samra Habib yn dechrau gyda thyfu i fyny fel rhan o sect leiafrifol ym Mhacistan, ac yn dilyn ei dyfodiad yng Nghanada fel ffoadur, cyn dianc rhag priodas wedi’i threfnu yn un ar bymtheg. Pan sylweddolodd ei bod yn cwiar, roedd yn ffordd arall eto o deimlo fel y un ar y cyrion.
A memoir of hope, faith and love, Samra Habib’s story starts with growing up as part of a threatened minority sect in Pakistan, and follows her arrival in Canada as a refugee, before escaping an arranged marriage at sixteen. When she realized she was queer, it was yet another way she felt like an outsider.
So begins a journey that takes her to the far reaches of the globe to uncover a truth that was within her all along. It shows how Muslims can embrace queer sexuality, and families can embrace change. A triumphant story of forgiveness and freedom, We Have Always Been Here is a rallying cry for anyone who has ever felt alone and a testament to the power of fearlessly inhabiting one’s truest self.
