Queering the Map - check out Occupied Gaza, the Occupied West Bank and Historic Palestine. For example, this message from Jaffa: "My sitti died without ever seeing this city again. In 1948 she was sent into exile from her homeland, from Jaffa "the bride of the sea". Before she died, she told me about a woman she once loved here. After the Nakba, she never saw her again. She never even found out if she survived. She told me she still thinks about her. I still mourn the life my grandmother might have been able to live here, in this city, in her homeland. I still mourn the love she shared with this woman, only to be torn apart by 60 years of exile. This land was her birthright. This life was her birthright. They were stolen from her. This place will be liberated. I will return one day to a liberated Palestine. For her."
