    Summary: 
    "The son of Moroccan immigrants, Dibi was elected to the Dutch Parliament in 2006, at just twenty-six years old. During his six years of service, he fought for the equal rights of Muslim migrants against a political elite that cast them as misogynists, as homophobes, and, after 9/11, as terrorists. But Dibi himself never came out publicly as queer-until he wrote Djinn. A bestseller upon its publication in Dutch in 2015, Djinn tells the poignant, at times heartbreaking story of Dibi's coming of age as a gay Muslim man with humor and grace. From his Amsterdam childhood to his experiences in New York City clubs and chatrooms and unlikely political ascent, Djinn offers a window onto contemporary issues of race, religion, sexuality, and human rights in and beyond Europe. Yet it also promises readers who, like Dibi as a young man, may not see themselves reflected in books, movies, and TV shows an all too rare sense of visibility and recognition"--
