Mr. Gay Syria

Presented as a fundraiser for Rainbow New Beginnings. All seats $12.

Poster for the beauty-contest documentary Mr. Gay SyriaMr. Gay Syria follows two gay Syrian refugees who are trying to rebuild their lives. Husein is a barber living in Istanbul, still not out to his conservative family. Mahmoud is the founder of Syria’s LGBTI movement, now a refugee in Berlin. What brings them together is a dream: to participate in an international beauty contest as an escape from their trapped lives and as an answer to their invisibility. Will their dream come true? Or will the refugee crisis and the harsh consequences of being gay in the Muslim world shatter it to pieces?

Presented as a fundraiser for the LGBTQ refugee sponsorship group, Rainbow New Beginnings. All seats $12. Advance tickets available from RainbowNewBeginnings@gmail.com.
