In 1300 BC, Nefertiti was an elegant and decadent Egyptian queen. In 2019, she is an elegant and decadent drag queen, the alter ego of Amir, a second generation British-Iraqi-Egyptian living at home in London with his strict Arab mother.

Nefertiti is also the name of the series that follows Amir and the scandalous double life he leads - pitting the conservative Manchester Arab community against the riotous Soho drag scene. Two very different worlds where looking the part is everything.

Blending narrative with excerpts of Amir's stand-up comedy and musical performances, Neferitti is a story immersed in the challenging queer politics of Transparent and with the cultural specificity of Chewing Gum.
