A tight-knit community in San Francisco has suddenly found itself divided over the ongoing conflict in Gaza, leaving some feeling cut off from the support of their peers they’ve grown accustomed to. Nasser Mohamed, a Qatari queer and human-rights activist and physician, was devastated by the news of the Hamas attack on Oct. 7, he said. He took to social media to call for peace, posting a photo on Instagram showing a man in a yarmulke kissing a man in a headscarf, captioned “We are seeing so much pain and suffering. Please stay strong.” “That was not well received by a lot of people,” he said.
