Join us for the Asia premiere of this touching, funny documentary on the lives of black lesbians in South Africa, through the apartheid era to the present. It covers six women, talking about their African identity ("if you say being gay is not African then you insult me, because you are saying I am not African"), falling in love during the apartheid struggle, contemporary lesbian culture, being successfully out, and more.
This film will be screened on Tuesday, November 22nd 2011. Return to film schedule.
