      Audience Member Informative, without being overly emotional. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Keepin' things in perspective. Brief and very well made. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I am still not sure why there is a Gay/Lesbian issue at all in places like the U.S., I mean really aren't there more important things - REALLY! Anyway, this documentary depicts just how far behind other countries are and that they are actually back-sliding into less tolerant attitudes is well, saddening. But it seems this whole planet is about judgement, torture of each other, and control. :O( Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Documentary based on the "52 case" or the Queen Boat gay case in Egypt in 2001 and the gay rights along the torture faced the 52 men during the investigation and the stigma after, movie expended the coverage in third world in Pakistan, Indea, Philippines and more. The deal with Queen Boat case was horrible Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review frederick m The fight for equality for the GLBT community all over the world. It's a fascinating documentary. The fight continues for many of these people. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Certainly here in the United States the fight for full equality is not over but I ask you all to pause just for a minute and be grateful that even though we ARE discriminated against we also are treated better than most GLBT's in the world.
