This year’s GQ Middle East Men of the Year awards were, despite the name, as much about women as they were men. Indeed, the first award winner we announced was Palestinian director Nadine Labaki, our Woman of the Year.
Our partnership with UN Women, global champions for gender equality, enabled them to deliver their message, via a comprehensive speech, about the importance of empowerment and equality for women the world over, and especially in the Middle East.
We also welcomed a host of the region’s most talented artists, performers and icons on the red carpet.
