Fahad Ali is a molecular biologist and science educator based in Sydney, Australia. His research is conducted on lands that have been places of teaching and learning for millennia under the custodianship of the Gadigal and Wangal peoples of the Eora nation, sovereignty for which has never been ceded. He is a proud member of the Palestinian diaspora.

Gay Palestinian activist Fahad Ali explains why the Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF) in Australia, by showing an Israeli state-funded film pretexting being 'apolitical', has failed the test of real solidarity with LGBTQ+ people in Palestine.
