About Saudi Champagne
Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, is hardly known as a “gay haven”, and John certainly didn’t think so. At least at first.
When his partner persists in moving there, he decides to end the matter once and for all by finding proof about how horrible life there can be.
After thorough research, however, he finds no evidence of beheadings of queer people. What he does find are testimonies of how good life can be, as long as they keep their sexuality hidden, a skill John has mastered.
What’s in store for a gay couple and their son when they move from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia?
Saudi Champagne tells one man’s personal journey of letting go of bad habits, finding passion, accepting a different culture, and being brave enough to make mistakes.
