2013 April 5: A loving visual memory is…

2013 April 5:   A loving visual memory is...

Marco Ntuli & the late Buhle Msibi (2005).
Photo by Zanele Muholi, captured with a Konica-Minolta 5.1 megapixels digital camera.
It was taken at the Forum for the Empowerment of Women (FEW) offices at Women’s Jail, Constitution Hill, Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

All that I’m left with is the photo of two beautiful human beings who were outspoken activists, artists, members of the organisation, always at the forefront of our SA feminist/ queer/ LGBTI movement.
Both Marco & Buhle shared their creative senses – spoken words with many of us and we embraced their talent.

They are featuring in Being MuM (2005), an unpublished documentary on motherhood and sexuality with 5 lesbian mothers that Zanele Muholi directed.
Marco is a survivor and Buhle never lived long enough to see this day.
Buhle died on the 1st April 2006 at Edenvale Hospital at the age of 25.
Tomorrow, on the 6th April 2013 will be commemorating the lives of Buhle Msibi and Busi Sigasa.
