Adding some Eastern Cape LGBTQ voices to the struggle ..

dawn, from the Coalition of African Lesbians

the eastern cape’s the most impoverished, most marginalised province in south africa. there are challenges not only from the westernised version of hate and intolerance that we all know about, but from traditional practice too. sadly, southern african indigenous populations aren’t amongst those ethnic groups who tolerate us trannies and queers. so those are brave faces, not just beautiful ones. and we’re talking grassroots activism. and it’s so worthwhile i can’t even begin to describe just how crucial it is.

seriously.

    aaah heck… “I need a haircut’. You’re such a girl…. wuahhahaaaha.
    Seriaasly, I look like i’m ferrying an undergroomed Lhasa Apso on my head at the moment. Guess I’ll have to take it to the parlour before I confront my Nan again?
