Hamed Sinno, Lebanese Rock Musician, openly gay in an Arab world

All he wants to do is play music, but he is a target for being gay in Lebanon and banned from several countries. As reported in the New York Times, "...Mr. Sinno, who has dual Lebanese and United States citizenship, doesn’t feel much more at ease in America than he does in the Middle East, saying that the “in your face” racism he encounters here is at least as bad as the homophobia back home. Last year, Mr. Sinno was at Le Bain, the nightclub in the meatpacking district, when a guy getting into an elevator shouted, “Build the wall!”"
