queens of beirut


Beirut is a city full of contrasts: a beautiful Mediterranean metropolis with visible scars from the past, from the civil war (1975-1990) and the recent devastating explosion in the port of Beirut (2020). A vibrant city, burdened by one of the worst financial crises in history. Queens of Beirut explores how the local drag community moves through this city. How do Lebanese drag queens relate to each other, society, and the current state the country is in? Meet Sultana Queen, Narcissa, Sit Yanna, Latiza Bombé, Robyn Hoes, Anissa Krana and Emma Gration, and their personal stories on trauma, love, family, drag, Lebanon, and above all, being yourself.

Queens of Beirut will be published in May 2023.
