A Jihad for Love
A Film by Parvez Sharma
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 in eight languages. Muslim gay filmmaker Parvez Sharma has gone where the silence is loudest, filming with great risk in nations where government permission to make this film was not an option. A Jihad for Love is the world’s first feature documentary to explore the complex global intersections between Islam and homosexuality. Sharma enters the many worlds of Islam by illuminating multiple stories as diverse as Islam itself.
