"It takes a brave man to make Lebanon's first gay-themed commercial feature. "Out Loud," helmer Samer Dabouland his cast are to be commended for their conviction and the palpable camaraderie onscreen."  ..."the characters, consisting of six friends, gay and straight, wanting to forge a new fellowship, have a winsome appeal"

--- Variety Review by Jay Weissberg

Bittersweet, high-energy, suspenseful and touching are the adjectives that come to mind watching  this highly entertaining and original movie coming out of  exotic and picturesque Lebanon. The movie carries a powerful message as it confronts the issue of LGBT relationships and free love in the Middle East. 

Powerful soundtrack by Emmy winner Christopher Brady.

"Making of" documentary included.

The Making of Out Loud is much more than a behind-the-scenes look at the myriad difficulties faced by the cast and crew of the Muslim world’s first commercial gay feature, Out Loud. This thought provoking, well researched look at the discrimination and outright persecution faced today by gays and lesbians in Muslim countries serves as a strong reminder of how precious Western gay rights gains are, as well as how much work remains to be done, especially in the face of many organized religions’ intolerance of the gay community.
