CHICAGO (PRWEB) October 27, 2014
Author Ali gives a poignant look into the lives of gay men living in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and other Middle Eastern Muslim countries in his eye-opening new book, “Two Gay Muslim Couples” (published by Lulu).
The couples depicted in “Two Gay Muslim Couples” all live in regions where homosexuality is punishable and repressed. They face physical as well as psychological damage and are unable to express their love unless they seek refuge in another country.
Through his book, Ali aims to give readers a realistic account of the plights and psychological problems many gay couples face in Muslim countries.
“By writing this book,” Ali says, “I want to create awareness in the readers who still do not understand the psychology of homosexuality and who think that gay lifestyle is a matter of choice, not something innate.”
An excerpt from “Two Gay Muslim Couples”:
“The following story of love between Ahmad and Mahmud unfolds first in Chahar Asyab district, which is located in the south of Kabul about seven miles from the capital. It is a green and fertile valley surrounded by mountains on three sides. The river of Kabul, which flows through Chahar Asyab, is an important source of cultivation in the area.”
