Gay Muslim explores his sexuality and faith in short film

Although director and musician Zaher Saleh's short film War Within deals with his struggle to balance his sexuality and his Muslim faith, he believes most people within the LGBT community will be able to relate to it.
 
War Within is not only inspired by my own personal journey but I think it is also reflective of many people’s struggles with coming out,” Saleh explained, “or for anybody in any way who is trying to conform to society's standards [that] aren’t true for them.”
 
“I hope that this film and my music in some small way helps to change attitudes and perceptions and contributes to making Middle Eastern and Muslim culture a safe and accepting culture to be queer," he added.
