Gay Beiruti musician: Islamophobia harms the LGBT community

Clip: 06/20/2016 | 5m 13s

Hamed Sinno, vocalist for the Beiruti indie-pop band Mashrou' Leila, is more than a soulful crooner -- he's an advocate for LGBT rights in the Middle East and around the world. That's why the mass shooting in Orlando affected him personally, because it left him feeling ostracized within queer circles for his skin color. Warning: this video contains language some viewers might find objectionable.
