Upcoming Film: Queer Student Alliance Screens “A Jihad for Love”

Sponsored by the Queer Student Alliance

Tuesday, April 27th at 7:30 pm – TITU

Synopsis: In a time when Islam is under tremendous attack–from within and without–‘A Jihad for Love’ is a daring documentary filmed in twelve countries and nine languages. Muslim gay filmmaker Parvez Sharma has gone where the silence is strongest, filming with great risk in nations where government permission to make this film was not an option. “A Jihad for Love” is the first-ever feature-length documentary to explore the complex global intersections of Islam and homosexuality. With unprecedented access and depth, Sharma brings to light the hidden lives of gay and lesbian Muslims from countries like Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey, France, India, and South Africa.
