What would you sacrifice for your family?
Sam and Mouna are both gay and can never come out to their parents, so they married for convenience. They are living a lie but they are living it up!
They are ‘out’ to their closest friends, but still in the closet when it comes to their family and the big Leb community. Secret lives filled with love and despair. Why would anyone live like that?
These couples are all Australian by birth, but Lebanese for life. This is about culture, family and honour.
They can never ‘come out’ to their family as the family would never accept it, they would be ostrasized and who knows what else!
Sam and Mouna, like so many Arabs around the world, just don’t come out - and they do whatever it takes to keep their sexuality a secret. This series shows one story among many of Arab queers living this life.
