Must See Iran

Iranian (American) Twitter users have been sharing photos of Iran while using #MustSeeIran. With President Rouhani promising to open up the country to tourism and letting the world tap into everything Iran has to offer (and ultimately creating a new source of income for Iranians)… this campaign couldn’t have come at a better time (what […]

Everything You Missed | The Weekly Roundup

Here’s what you missed this week: Rarely heard, and so very honest: this writer’s experience of being Middle Eastern and having a sister with special needs. There’s a negative stigma that people with special needs battle in the Iranian community. We all know Tehrangeles has it going on – Iranian restaurants, ice cream shops, cafes, and hookah […]

How to Keep Him Interested

As I sat in the waiting room at the doctor, I skimmed through the month old magazines strewn across the table. The bright colours of Cosmopolitan begged to be chosen. Okay, maybe it was Olivia Wilde’s cleavage. Regardless, one of the articles caught my eye. “Ways to keep him interested!” I figure as a penis […]

I’m Not Crazy Because I’m Persian

I love everything about being Persian and I feel like everyone else should love it too. So you can imagine my surprise when other people react to my Persian-ness with Oh you’re Persian? I hear Persian girls are crazy.   I usually meet those responses with a small laugh and a do you know any Persian girls? Either I […]

Iconic Iranian Caricatures

Mohammad Ali Ziaei Caricature artist. No one is off limits – Iranian artists and politicians, and certainly people in the wild wild west. Major shout-out to ReorientMag for bringing this genius to our attention. Hilarity ensues. Mohsen Namjoo. Otherwise known as Iran’s “Bob Dylan,” he’s inspired by Blues, Rock, and Iranian folk music Hayedeh. The […]

Iranian Cafes Also Found In… India?

You already know we’re obsessed with Persian food. (all food really). And obviously, the highest concentration of Iranian restaurants/cafes/hookah bars/etc. outside of Iran are in TEHRANGELES. But what about the rest of the world? We came across some “Irani cafes” located in Mumbai. Apparently a dying breed… :( The rise of Persian immigrants to India in […]

Growing Up With Special Needs

Every Persian parent’s dream is to have their child become a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. But what happens when you already know that there is little chance of that happening? It’s often devastating for parents to receive news that their child has some sort of special needs. Special needs come in various forms: autism, epilepsy, down […]

Does “One Size Fit All” in Relationships?

A friend of mine from college got engaged about two years ago and recently broke up with her fiancée. Of course, the entire thing was made public on Facebook, right from when they first started dating until her relationship status announced “single” and all their pictures together disappeared from her profile. A few weeks ago, I noticed that […]

Iranian Artists Graffiti My Heart

We love art. Especially when art is sharing a forbidden message. An ode to our favorite graffiti artists  (and a special introduction to someone new):  ICY AND SOT. Stencil artist born in Tabriz, Iran… and now they’re addressing social global issues around the world through their work in cities like LA, Chicago, New Orleans, and their new home […]

I Love and Hate Dating White Boys

I really try not to discriminate: Asian, Black, Mexican, Persian obviously, and Sefeed - you name it, I’ve tried it. And as much as I prefer Persian, you have to work with what you’re surrounded with. Especially on the east coast… which is 90% white. Looking back at my dating history with white guys, I’ve come to realize that there […]
