Grandson of Omar Sharif. Actor. Model. “Egypt’s favorite son.” Omar Sharif Jr. has been given a lot of labels, but the one he shared with the world in 2012 changed everything. He’s gay. And when he decided to reveal his secret during the middle of a revolution, he turned his entire world upside down. At the Oslo Freedom Forum, Sharif explains why he gave up the prestige he inherited from his family in order to help LGBT Muslims around the world.
