Iran’s Unwanted Sons & Doughters
In Iran, sexual identity can be a matter of life and death.
This is a film about the life and challenges of Iranian LGBT. Iranian officials, including former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are consistently denying the existence of LGBT people in Iran.
Homosexuality is a sickness to be cured. The policies of discrimination and the legislation that criminalizes Iran’s sons and daughters for being who they are have left a terrible trail of grief and branded memories of rejection. For Iranian LGBT who are unwanted in their homeland and family homes, the best chance of survival is to get Out of Iran.
