Anya Kneez


Anya Kneez is a Lebanese Drag artist who helped pioneer a local queer scene in Beirut, challenging gender norms while re-envisioning drag as art in the Arab world. She readily draws inspiration from her Lebanese heritage, Arab nostalgia, fashion history, and her mother. She now resides in Brooklyn, NY where she continues to use her growing platform to push boundaries and be an advocate for Arab Queers all over the world.
