"COMING AROUND is a moving portrayal of a story that is all too common but seldom told. This tender film perfectly encapsulates the beautiful work of loving other humans unconditionally, and both the pain and joy that results from the courageous act of showing the world our most honest selves. Nothing delights me more than a piece of art that is as gorgeous as it is important. COMING AROUND clears that difficult bar with ease."

"This film serves as a precious rebuke to a political realm that pits queer and Muslim identities against each other. It offers Queer Muslim youth a rare opportunity to finally hear their story being told."
