2013 Sept. 29: Soweto Pride 2013

This is what happened when the Black LGBTI & Queer community claimed their citizenship to combat homophobia/ queerphobia/ transphobia/ xenophobia and lesbophobia on the streets of Soweto in Johannesburg…

Part of Inkanyiso’s video archives.

+ 5oo people were in attendance, mostly from various townships of Johannesburg. An event hosted by the Forum for the Empowerment of Women (FEW). This marked 9th anniversary since this pride was formed.
Soweto Pride was conceptualized by Phumla Masuku in discussion with Donna Smith who were both staff members at FEW.
