Kohl: a journal for Body and Gender Research

Kohl is a progressive, feminist journal on gender and sexuality based in Lebanon and covering the whole MENA region (Middle East, South West Asia, and North Africa).

Kohl is a progressive, feminist journal on gender and sexuality based in Lebanon and covering the whole MENA region (Middle East, South West Asia, and North Africa). It was formed in December 2014 as a queer feminist initiative and since then operates as an alternative feminist platform that sheds light on queer and feminist histories in the region aiming to challenge the hegemony of knowledge production and counter Orientalist and neocolonial narratives by ensuring that young feminist scholars and activists in the region play a central role in shaping knowledge about themselves. Kohl is a multilingual online journal published twice a year in English, French, and Arabic with different types of articles, including research, testimonies, opinion pieces, commentaries, reviews, literary pieces, conversations, interviews, and soon visual and audiovisual materials. The editorial team works closely with the contributors in the scopes of a mentorship system or a back and forth collaborative editing process with different contributors. In these two years of existence, Kohl has attracted a lot of international attention and has become a point of reference for many activists and scholars alike, from the region or globally, who are looking for knowledge on feminism, gender, and sexuality from MENA.
