This Arab Is Queer: An Anthology by LGBTQ+ Arab Writers
This ground-breaking anthology features the compelling and courageous memoirs of eighteen queer Arab writers – some internationally bestselling, others using pseudonyms. Here, we find heart-warming connections and moments of celebration alongside essays exploring the challenges of being LGBTQ+ and Arab.
From a military base in the Gulf to loving whispers caught between the bedsheets; and from touring overseas as a drag queen to a concert in Cairo where the rainbow flag was raised to a crowd of thousands, this collection celebrates the true colours of a vibrant Arab queer experience.
‘A fascinating insight into the realities of being a queer Arab, the book is likely to provoke, inspire and create conversations.’ -Entertainment Focus
