Congratulations to Parvez Sharma and Sandi DuBowski on the release of A Jihad for Love here in NYC at IFC Center. The documentary details the live of gay and lesbian women, who are also Muslim. It was filmed over 5 1/2 years in 12 countries and in nine languages.
More details on Facebook, too, if you're in the area. You can also read Sharma's blog on his experience making the documentary and watch the Jihad for Love trailer.
With the debut of this film here in New York and California's recent confirmation of gay marriage, it's a remarkable week for human rights, coast to coast.
