English

Maher Sabry is an Egyptian filmmaker, theatre director and cartoonist. He « was the first director to portray gay and lesbian love in lyrical and sympathetic manner on stage, in fact in the Egyptian media as a whole? » (Arts and the Islamic World, vol.35). His work as a gay activist for Egyptian LGBT, including alerting the international community to the notorious Queen Boat arrests of 2001, and helping its victims, earned him the Felipa de Souza Award, in 2002, from the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. He has made several short films and a documentary. « All My Life » (2008) is his first feature length.
