Gay and Lesbian Studies

The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the Pacific School of Religion makes note of the film, “In The Name of Allah,” described as “the world’s first documentary to explore the complex intersections of Islam with Gender and Sexuality. It is by Parvez SharmaThe film which is currently a work in progress “takes a close, involved and personal look at the mostly invisible lives of a strong but seldom heard minority: lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender Muslims and their allies. In the recent past there have been some glimpses of these lives, seen through camera’s eagerness to capture the silence that surrounds them. This film will go further in detailing the richness and persecution, intense pain and joyous celebration that come with being LGBTQ and Muslim.”
