Michel Sarkiss, Mister Lebanon ’09 finalist and the winner of Mr. Photogenic, has made his debut in acting along with model and Mister Lebanon ’09 semi-finalist Jad Hadid, and other young unknown actors in the upcoming movie, “Out Loud”. The movie portrays the struggle of 5 Lebanese young guys with their identity, personal issues, and the problems they face in today’s society including homophobia.
This movie is a very bold step from director Samer Daboul who said in an interview for a local magazine, that we’re all ultimately equal regardless of our sexual orientations. He added that when we treat each other with respect, everything else like politics, religion, rules, traditions, and money becomes irrelevant. He concluded the interview by saying that he looks forward to seeing the Lebanese, and particularly public figures admitting that some of the world greatest heroes were gay.
“Out Loud” will be officially released in theaters in the summer of 2012.
