SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14

6 PM MR. GAY SYRIA


Husein is a barber in Istanbul living a double life that pits his conservative family and upbringing against his gay identity. Mahmoud is the founder of Syria’s LGBTI movement and lives in Berlin. What unites them is a shared dream: to participate in an international beauty contest to escape their trapped lives and overcome their invisibility. Will the dream come true or will the refugee crisis and the harsh
reality of being gay in the Muslim world shatter it? (Turkey, 2018, 84 min., NR, Arabic with English subtitles | Dir. Ayse Toprak)

7:30 PM CLOSING NIGHT RECEPTION with the Long Island Gay Mens Chorus
