Abstract:

This powerful documentary offers a fascinating and moving insight into the lives of South Africa's black lesbians who, raped because of their sexuality, refuse to become victims. Set in Johannesburg and its surrounding townships, the film interweaves the experiences of four women, victims of rape, as they prepare for an annual Gay Pride celebration. With courage and a remarkable resilience, they describe the immense prejudices they have had to endure in their townships. They share the disturbing details of their attacks, and discuss how this horrible crime, intended to teach them to "act like women", exposes them to sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS, and often goes ignored by the authorities. These four courageous women - Keba, Bathini, Mary, and Buhle - also discuss how they have embraced their identity since their attacks and decided to publicly speak out against this hate crime.
