Aisya Zaharin


Aisya Aymanee M. Zaharin serves as one of the board members of Australia GLBTQIA+ Multicultural Council (AGMC) while doing her PhD on navigating Asian values and media responsibility. Her research includes fields in political science and history, decolonisation to LGBTQI+ and Islam with a focus on improving social inequality, promoting cultural relativism and social responsibility concept. Being an intersectional feminist allows her to understand the depths of how people’s social identities can create overlapping inequalities and discrimination. She shares the voices of those experiencing intersecting discrimination and further integrates these with her lived experience and learnings through her academic-activist performance. Her recent collaborative publication on countering Islamic conservatism on being transgender has received more than 70,000 views since it was published a year and half ago, indicating an urgent resolution on the foresaid issue.
