War is hell.
Especially when you’re gay and in the throes of forbidden love.
Tonight, the documentary Out of Iraq: A Love Story debuts on Logo and it’s utterly shocking and terrifying.
Plus, extraordinarily hopeful and beautiful.
The powerful film explores the relationship between an Iraqi soldier and a translator who’ve fallen in love under the most harrowing of circumstances. Of course, homosexuality’s a big no-no in Iraq, so the men must come up with a plan to flee.
Or be killed.
For anyone who thinks relationships are challenging, this inspirational story puts so many of our everyday “struggles” into real perspective.
It’s a Pride Month story that will truly make you proud.
Out of Iraq: A Love Story
Premieres tonight on Logo, 9:00/8:00 p.m. Central
