Journalist Michael Luongo became interested in the lives of homosexuals in the Muslim world shortly after Sept. 11. Since that time, he has made a number of visits to Afghanistan, Baghdad and other Muslim countries in order to get a better understanding of this complex topic. The result is Gay Travels in the Muslim World, an anthology of writings by gay Muslim and non-Muslim men.
Luongo will be in Indianapolis for an appearance at Out Word Bound Bookstore, 625 N. East St., July 9 at 7 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 317-951-9100 or go to www.outwordbound.com.
