جنسانية ام كلثومcopy of Oum Khulthoums Sexuality
She was able to accomplish what no political leader could with her voice. People across the Arab world, from the Gulf to the Atlantic Ocean, used to disappear as if hibernating every first Thursday of the month at exactly ten o’clock, for that was the time for Oum Kulthoum (1898 – 1975) would sing, the “Planet of the Orient.” Silence would take over the streets and everyone would kneel in front of the radios. It was the ritual that united Arabs in their modern history like nothing else ever did or could.
Many works on Oum Kulthoum have tried to understand the relationship between her and the audience, and to analyze how they viewed her talent. But what about her sexuality?
