Lesbian features the voices of four Muslim lesbians who are crossing barriers by speaking honestly about their sexual orientation and living their lives honestly while continuing to practice Islam.

Sehakia searches out a silenced subculture: lesbian Muslims. Four women from cultures that have traditionally allowed women little control over their lives and excluded homosexuals struggle to understand the contradictions between their sexuality and their religion.
