This Arab is Queer"An Anthology by Lgbtq+ Arab Writers" - Elias Jahshan


'We will repeat it often in the months that follow, to friends who were not there, to sceptics, to ourselves: in that moment, it felt like pride.'


For the first time, LGBTQ+ Arabs come together to share their personal stories of hope, struggle and love.


This ground-breaking anthology features the searingly honest and moving 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 whispers between lovers caught between the bedsheets; and from a concert in Cairo where the rainbow flag was raised to a crowd of thousands, to making it hap-pen as a drag queen in exile, this collection celebrates the true colours of a rich, vibrant Arab queer experience.
