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.
