The Wonder of Anime

Apr 16, 2020

On this week’s episode of the podcast, I was joined by the lovely Najah Abdul-Qawiyy. Najah is a Black and Muslim cosplayer from New York who also runs her on anime/geek convention! In this episode, we had a conversation about her finding a way to be true to herself and her interest, while still honoring her faith. We also discuss gatekeeping in the fandom, cosplaying, the process to developing her own convention, and so much more.
