I LUV U BUT: Living a Lie But Living It Up!

May 9, 2014

I LUV U BUT is a popular web series about an Arab lesbian Mouna and gay guy Sam who get married for convenience. They are ‘out’ to their closest friends, but still in the closet when it comes to their family and the big Lebanese community because they just wouldn’t understand or accept their sexuality.

This series shows one story among many of Arab queers living this life – a story about culture, family and honour. The first season released in 2012 has attracted fans worldwide, reaching out to queer communities across the globe especially in countries where homosexuality is illegal.

“I wanted to make season two because so many people said they enjoyed season one,” says writer/director Fadia Abboud. “It reflected a subculture that is rarely seen and often misunderstood.”


Sam (George El Hindi) is in the middle of a hot threesome when there’s a knock at the door – it’s not just his mother but his wife Mouna’s (Abbey Aziz) mum too!
