You might be surprised to hear that Afghanistan’s first female rapper is counted among GSBTB’s community members.
Paradise is one half of the 143 Band, originally from Herat, Afghanistan, but now based in Berlin. Their lyrics often deal with topics such as violence and discrimination against women.
The band is involved with the GSBTB Open Music School and both members, Paradise and Diverse, are regularly seen at our community team up events and weekly yoga session.
On Tuesday 24 May the 143 Band will be speaking at the Berlin premier screening of the film Sonita, an award-winning documentary which follows a refugee from Afghanistan living in Tehran and making rap music.
Give Something Back to Berlin is supporting this event which is hosted by the Berlin Feminist Film Week.
