NEW VIDEO: “A Matter of Life or Death: LGBTQ+ Refugees”: Being LGBTQ+ in the United States can definitely be difficult, but in some countries around the world you can go to jail or even be killed if you are out of the closet. For part 5 of my Pride Month series, “Chosen Family: Stories of Queer Resilience,” I met two incredible members of our community, Shadi (from Syria) and Sharifa (from Uganda) who went to incredible lengths to flee their home countries to avoid persecution. You’ll love them.

anonymous asked:

do you have suggestions for good Arabic movies with english subtitles

I haven’t been able to really find them outside of Netflix or Youtube. (Mostly because I don’t know where to start and I’m a beginner.) I mostly watch Lebanese movies since that is my focus. This is what I have found:

There are also plenty of shows, which is what I watch, but most have no subtitles. 

I’m sure native speakers can be of greater help since I just watch whatever I can find. :)

Marcelotwelve In the last 5 years I have continued to grow and learn, personally and professionally. In 5 years they pass many things. 5 years is exactly the time that the children of Syria have been suffering the effects of a terrible war.  #Syria5years @unicef
