The Hour Cover, International Herald Tribune and some more love

We are here in Sao Paulo. First screening tonight.
Meanwhile, The Hour in Montreal has done a COVER Feature on the film here
And The International Herald Tribune is running a story here.
The Montreal Gazette is running a story here
And Planet Out's Hassan Mirza interviews me here

Update:
Both screenings in Sao Paulo were very well received and yes, packed with audiences again, who in that very Brazilian way, asked long and thoughtful questions.

More comments have been coming in and as always, I post them below:

"thereis nothing unusual in being Gay Muslim and ARAB. there are plenty of evils like murder, INCEST, rape, homosexuality, pornography etc many many evils are existing among muslims as well as non-muslims. KORAN deplores and condemns these evils. surely you will meet many propagaters of SATAN under the garb of human rights and civil liberties but if you believe in hell and heaven in the life hereafter then what will you do to protect yourself from ALLAH's wrath. IN CASE IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN LIFE HEREAFTER THEN nothing to worry about. KORAN is not for non-muslims, ex-muslims like salman rushdie or imposter muslims "


"This is an insane initiative to try and incorporate homosexuality into Islam. Dont you read the Quran? If you decide to interperate the pure and flawless Quran according to your own beliefs..then u only ask Allahs curse twofold. You talk about Jihad,but did u make Ijtihad over the matter. You wil find that no place exists in Islam for Ijtihad on matters which are explicitly clear in the Quran. May Allah guide u to accept Islam as it came to us."

This JIHAD IS ON FIRE

September 2007 is when I started (with a finished film, my first) and now some 49 countries and 8 million people later, the whole world is talking. The movement around this work has begun worldwide. We will be screening next year around the world and yes in Muslim countries as well.
