LBC TV broadcasts “Brokeback Mountain” with non-homophobic Arabic subtitles


Star-crossed lovers — the poster was fashioned...

We received the following email on Nov. 2, 2010 from a supporter:

“Yesterday, while I was doing the usual “switching without thinking” between the local channels on TV, I came accross Jake Gyllenhaal on LBC local, my favorite Jake… I wish Heath ledger was here too… and as they say: be careful what you wish for, there I go… Brokeback Mountain was on LBC local around 11 pm, translation into arabic was none homophobic, no “shaz, ghayr tabi3i” among the white lines at the bottom of the screen, what LBC is doing is a move in the right direction, it is time for things to change around here…  thumbs up to LBC.”
