This year, Pride Month coincided with the 20th commemoration of the Queen Boat incident in Egypt, and the first anniversary of Sarah Hegazy's passing.

On this occasion, ANKH has organized, along with our partners, various panel discussions to tackle different issues that the Arab LGBTQI+ community is facing. 

We dedicate this series of events to the memory of Sarah Hegazy, a strong, communist, feminist, queer, Egyptian woman whose struggle will always inspire us; and to all the brave LGBTQI+ individuals all over the world who keep fighting for their rights and for a better future for all of us.
