About A Sinner In Mecca: A Gay Muslim's Hajj Of Defiance

Product Description The Hajj pilgrimage is a journey every Muslim is commanded by God to go on at least once in a lifetime if they are able and, like millions, Parvez Sharma believes his spiritual salvation lies at Islam's ground zero, Mecca. But unlike the journeys of his fellow Muslims, the consequences of his own could be deadly. In A Sinner in Mecca, author and filmmaker Parvez chronicles his pilgrimage as a very openly gay Muslim to Saudi Arabia, where Islam's heart beats . . . and where being true to himself is punishable by death. Risking his life, Parvez embarks on a Jihad of the self-filming his experience along the way. Already under fire for his documentary A Jihad for Love, which looks at the coexistence of Islam and homosexuality, he would undoubtedly face savage punishment if exposed-from being thrown off a cliff to public beheading. Parvez's odyssey is at once audacious, global, and remarkable. He meets everyone from extremists to explorers of the spiritual kind, and the world they open up is frightening . . . yet breathtaking. In Mecca, Parvez comes out to a pilgrim, who then asks him why he would want to be part of something that wants no part of him. This book is his answer to this question and many more. Review "Given the perception that the Middle East is largely hostile to the LGBTQ community, Parvez Sharma's spiritual memoir A Sinner in Mecca is shocking in its clarity and candor." ---Foreword Reviews About the Author Parvez Sharma is an award-winning filmmaker and writer. His film A Sinner in Mecca has garnered worldwide media attention and was a New York Times Critics' Pick. He also directed and produced A Jihad for Love, which won the 2009 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary.
