Book: Two Gay Muslim Couples by Ali

Author: Lulu
Published: Saturday 1st November 2014
Summary: The book Two Gay Muslim Couples gives a look into lives of gay men living in Iraq Iran Afghanistan and Middle Eastern Muslim countries.


The couples depicted in "Two Gay Muslim Couples" all live in regions where homosexuality is punishable and repressed.

They face physical as well as psychological damage and are unable to express their love unless they seek refuge in another country.

Through his book, Ali aims to give readers a realistic account of the plights and psychological problems many gay couples face in Muslim countries.

"By writing this book," Ali says, "I want to create awareness in the readers who still do not understand the psychology of homosexuality and who think that gay lifestyle is a matter of choice, not something innate."
