“Out of Iraq:” Puts LGBT Pride in its proper context

 

Logo’s release of its documentary film “Out of Iraq” puts the true purpose of protest marches and pride celebrations in their proper context. Academy Award winning director Eva Orner takes us into the heart of Iraq to the complicated life of Nayyef, an artist and a trained interpreter who is gay. How do you come out in a culture that not only doesn’t support you, they would kill you if you acted on your authentic self. Logo is now beginning the second year of their Global Ally campaign that brings to light the stories of activists around the world and highlights how it truly takes courage to live your life as you were intended.
