A Jihad for Love

Rated NR 81 minutes 2008

Parvez Sharma, a gay Muslim filmmaker from India, takes us on a sober documentary tour of such places as Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, South Africa, France, etc., to show us how conscientious, religiously devout gay men and women are coping with Islamic fundamentalism and its blanket condemnation of homosexuality. Even as many gay Muslims choose exile in the West, they are caught in the cultural strife of “anti-terrorism” directed against Muslims, thus Sharma’s title, in the sense that “jihad” is defined as “struggle.” Worthwhile reporting (81 min.).
