Come watch “A Sinner in Mecca” with filmmaker and writer Parvez Sharma. Sharma’s documentaries and written works dissect the complicated intersection of faith and sexuality. Through his work as a director and writer, Sharma continually confronts the dissonance between his gay and Muslim identities, enabling dialogue for an otherwise taboo topic.
Sharma has also worked as an advocate and activist for the LGBT community and was featured as a keynote speaker to the United Nations at the Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy. His work as an author, activist, and director has given a voice to communities where, as Sharma puts it, “the silence is strongest.”
