Product Description

This Arab is Queer is a groundbreaking anthology that brings together the powerful and courageous memoirs of eighteen queer Arab writers—some internationally bestselling, others writing under pseudonyms. This collection captures the vibrant spectrum of the Arab queer experience, offering heart-warming connections and moments of celebration alongside essays that delve into the unique challenges of being LGBTQ+ and Arab. From stories set in a military base in the Gulf to intimate whispers between lovers, and from the world of a touring drag queen to a historic concert in Cairo where the rainbow flag was proudly raised, these narratives highlight the diverse and dynamic lives of queer Arabs.

Contributors include Khalid Abdel-Hadi, Amna Ali, Madian Aljazeera, Mona Eltahawy, Raja Farah, Saleem Haddad, Zeyn Joukhadar, Amrou Al-Kadhi, Dima Mikhayel Matta, Hasan Namir, Danny Ramadan, Tania Safi, Omar Sakr, Anbara Salam, Hamed Sinno, and Ahmed Umar.
