The hijab is a forum of feminism in the middle east. Being nude isn’t freedom for them, its oppression and wearing a hijab sets them free.
Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people.
