March 18, 2009
The Gay-Straight Students Alliance at Wake Forest University will show the award-winning documentary film “A Jihad for Love” at 6 p.m. March 24 in Greene Hall, Room 162.
The event is free and open to the public, and the screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the film’s director, Parvez Sharma.
The 81-minute film, which has won five international awards, deals with the themes of Islam and homosexuality in a post-Sept. 11 world and seeks to challenge many stereotypes of Islam in a time when much of the religion and its one billion followers are misunderstood.
