  • Community Engagement
  • Social Exclusion
  • Internet
  • Open Source
  • Social Software is a bilingual tool for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) young people in the Middle East.  It uses gaming principles to facilitate safe, high-quality interactions between a community that is typically censored and frequently threatened in a culture with some of the world's most rigid gender norms.

Ahwaa ("passions" in Arabic) is one of the projects of the Mideast Youth organization - an indigenous, grassroots digital network harnessing the new media to fuel a movement against oppression in the Middle East and North Africa.
