A two minutes video circulated on social media a few days ago with the opening statement ‘Hi…I’m most hated lesbian in Egypt’. The message came from a young Egyptian woman named Dalia Al-Faghal, who recently publicly came out as a lesbian on Facebook. Faghal was born and raised in Saudi Arabia to Egyptian parents. She hid her attraction to women for as long as she could, she said in an article by Cairo Scene, but they started to figure out her sexuality might not be what they thought when she was 12.
