I AM GAY AND MUSLIM

The film ‘I AM GAY AND MUSLIM’ focuses on the subject of gay rights in the Islamic world. This intimate documentary follows a number of young gay Moroccan men in their exploration of their religious and sexual identity.


Triggered by the current political situation in which homosexuality and the Islam seem irreconcilable, director Chris Belloni spent the major part of 2011 traveling in Morocco to interview gay Muslims.


The men portrayed in the film openly share their personal experiences and talk about the ambiguity and secretiveness of the life they feel condemned to live, although some have openly acknowledged their sexual orientation.
