Gay Muslim Film, "A Jihad for Love"

(Ithaca, New York) A feature documentary about homosexual Muslims, A Jihad for Love, will be shown at Ithaca College at 7 PM on March 2nd. The screening is free and open to the public.

The film was produced and directed by a gay Muslim, Parvez Sharma, with footage taken in 12 countries in nine languages. A Jihad for Love has reportedly won numerous international honors.

The showing is sponsored by the Ithaca College Center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Education, Outreach, and Services as part of the Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen Series.

The 81-minute A Jihad for Love was released in 2007 and has been shown in a number of countries and in cities throughout the U.S. Based upon reported responses, I would guess that it doesn't insult Islam as much as cartoons.
