Dangerous Living is part of The Human Rights Watch Collection.
Dangerous Living: Coming Out in the Developing World is the first documentary to deeply
explore the lives of gay and lesbian people in non-western cultures. Traveling
to five different continents, we hear the heartbreaking and triumphant stories
of gays and lesbians from Egypt, Honduras, Kenya, Thailand and elsewhere, where
most occurrences of oppression receive no media coverage at all. By sharing
the personal stories coming out of developing nations, Dangerous Living sheds light on an emerging global movement striving to end discrimination and
violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people.
