ANYA KNEEZ: A Queen in Beirut

A film by Mohamad Abdouni

Anya Kneez is an Arab Drag Queen who left Brooklyn in the Summer of 2012, after 23 years in America, and moved back home to live with her parents in Beirut, Lebanon. Five years later, at 28, Anya still struggles with the values of a Middle Eastern society that remains unable to accommodate her lifestyle. The short form documentary offers a glimpse into the life of the boy who brought Drag from the slums of Brooklyn to the clubs of Beirut.
