Mr Gay Syria
Mahmoud, the founder of Syria’s LGBT movement, currently lives in Berlin as a refugee. Yet, he organizes "Mr. Gay Syria", a contest in Istanbul, to encourage LGBT refugees in Turkey to participate in an international beauty contest as an escape from their trapped lives and an answer to their invisibility. Husein, also a Syrian refugee, works as a barber in Istanbul. He participates in the local contest with a small group of LGBT refugees, and wins. Will he achieve his dream of going to the Mr Gay World contest, or will the refugee crisis and the harsh consequences of being gay in the Muslim world shatter it to pieces?
