Lynn is a cultural anthropologist in the making whose research and activism are grounded in queer grassroots organizing and feminist cross-movement building. She dedicated the past decade to realizations of social, economic, racial, ecological, and gender justice. In Beirut, she co-coordinated a support group for queer women and trans persons, have been the English editor of a feminist and queer magazine, and a founding member of a local feminist collective. Lynn has been part of global feminist and human rights organizations, alliances, and solidarity networks – such as the Association of Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), Amnesty International, the Coalition for Sexual and Bodily Rights in Muslim Societies (CSBR), and Realizing Sexual and Reproductive Justice (RESURJ) – where she connected and worked closely with social justice advocates around the world. Her research interests are in exploring non-oppressive forms of solidarity and coalition building within and across social movements for justice.
