Gender Me

Welcome to the secret world of homosexual Muslims. Through unique insight in the daily life in Istanbul we face the obstacles and the difficulties of being gay and living as a Muslim.

At the same time we’re travelling with the world’s first openly gay Imam in Norway on his journey to question faith and gender.

The film unfolds the sub-cultures of Islam and is a story full of personal voyages and contradictory images in a world of taboos.
