In Beirut, where homosexuality is forbidden, a small apartment serves as a sanctuary for four LGBT Lebanese of different faiths and cultural backgrounds to speak freely about their lives in a land divided by war, family, religion, and other countries' conflicts.

    I showed up and didn't see anyone. I bought a ticket and went to the Theatre. At 5:55 I announced to the entire audience if the LGBT movie club was there. No one knew what I was talking about. Then I read in the catalogue a film about a 23 yr old TS who had a supportive wife and best friend who I saw in the lobby. This was traumatic since I am an unreadable post-op TS who has had an unsupportive wife who torturted me for 10 years while I trasnitioned and got surgery. I cried leaving the Theatre and banged my face into the glass door as I left. I now have a swollen lip. It was all lots of fun, guys! Let's do it again (not).
