OCT 9th :  3 VEILS   6pm

On October 9th, the eve of National “Coming Out” Week, the Indiana LGBT Film Festival features 3 Veils, a poignant drama that follows the stories of three young Middle Eastern women living in the U.S., each with her own secret. The lives of the three women intertwine as each struggles to defy tradition and create her own reality. This film was selected for screening the night before the IUP Six O’Clock Series presents Hidden Voices, the Lives of LGBT Muslims.

Hidden Voices: The Lives of LGBT Muslims

Free and Open to the Public

6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

This program highlights the many struggles and challenges facing sexual and gender minorities within the Muslim world and examines the complex intersection of religion, sexuality, and gender. The speaker, Faisal Alam, is a queer-identified Muslim activist, speaker, and writer of Pakistani descent who has traveled across the country and around the world to deliver his message. Using his own life experiences and exploring the complex history of the Islamic world, Faisal Alam sheds new light on the lives of an often invisible and silent community: Muslims who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning.

In this video, Faisal Alam contributes to keynote discussion at Creating Change Conference for Queer Muslim Revolution. Within this conversation, Faisal includes many of the topics he will discuss at the October 10, 2011 Six O’Clock Series.

This program is co-sponsored by the GLBT Commission, the Office for International Education, Pride Alliance, and Religious Studies.
