Take a look at the gpg2 documentation - the manual page says and even has
an explicit example of using both the -s and the -e options:
gpg -se -r Bob file
sign and encrypt for user Bob
Of course, you can point to a more specific recipient's key by giving either
an e-mail address or, better yet, a key ID instead of "Bob" to the -r option;
and you can specify which key to sign with using the -k option if you have
more than one secret key on the GnuPG installation where you're running this.
Hope this helps.
