SEYRAN ATEŞ: SEX, REVOLUTION AND ISLAM & UNITY MOSQUE

1h 22m Documentary, LGBT, Religion, Queer, Feminist 2021

In the 1960s, the hippies championed the idea of a sexual revolution. They received neither Fatwas nor bodyguards. Today, Seyran Ateş – a Turkish- German lawyer, feminist, and one of the first female imams in Europe – is fighting for a sexual revolution within Islam. In return, she was shot, received fatwas and death threats, and now has to live under constant police protection.
