Omar Sakr draws on his experiences as a bisexual Arab Australian growing up in Western Sydney for his writings. His acclaimed poetry is urgent, fierce and remarkable and his most recent collection, The Lost Arabs, won the 2020 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for poetry. His debut novel is Son of Sin, is a searing examination of what binds families together, and what can tear them apart, as 14-year old Jamal tries to come to terms with his Queerness while being a good Muslim boy.
