Dangerous Living: Coming Out in a Developing World

Discrimination against gays is a human rights issue.
"Dangerous Living", by acclaimed director John Scagliatti, is the first documentary to explore the lives of gay and lesbian people in non-western cultures.

AKPress review: "Traveling to five different continents, we hear the heartbreaking and triumphant stories of gays and lesbians from Egypt, Honduras, Kenya, Thailand, and elsewhere, where most occurrences of oppression receive no media coverage at all.

"By sharing the personal stories coming out of developing nations, Dangerous Living sheds light on an emerging global movement striving to end discrimination and violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people."

"Narrated by Janeane Garofalo. Bonus features include: shocking footage of the Cairo 52 trial; interviews with the director and Howard Dean; Human Rights Watch film notes; biographies; and trailer gallery."
