Summary In Parvez Sharma's six-time award winning film, A Jihad for Love, Sharma is a Muslim gay filmmaker who has spent over five and a half years uncovering the personal stories of gay and lesbian Muslims from around the world. Filmed in twelve countries and in nine languages, A Jihad for Love is a raw and powerful account of the conflict between their religion, and their sexuality. Forbidden in the Koran, gay and lesbian Muslims must often travel a lonely and dangerous road, a road which can lead to many feeling forced to renounce their religion completely. The individuals profiled in A Jihad for Love, however, are not willing to abandon their faith. Instead the film reveals their incredible stories of imprisonment, assault, confusion and humiliation. Jihad or 'an inner struggle' truly gains a new meaning throughout this film. These courageous Muslims encounter countless hurdles in order to accept themselves, and be accepted by others. This film speaks with a Muslim voice, from Muslim people who are captured in between the passion of their love and religion.
