  • "We Are Not Broken!" - The Social Cost of Exclusion
    "We Are Not Broken!" - The Social Cost of Exclusion Commissioned by OutRight International and produced by a South African Production Company, Doti Productions, the film takes a brief glimpse into how most African societies deal with homosexuality – by socially excluding them. “The language that is used (…by Society) does lead to stigmatization, discrimination and judgment because in fact it starts there. People try to correct, people try to cure this individual,” Steve Letsike, Director of Access Chapter 2 explains. Not only are most African LGBTIQ people ostracized and socially excluded by they are also subjected to violence and prevented from accessing their basic rights. Snowy Mamba, OutReach Coordinator at Transgender and Intersex Africa explains how she was attacked and sexually violated in 2012. “I went to the police seeking help and they didn’t treat me with respect and dignity above all before the law and the constitution that we have…I am a human being!”
  • "We Must be Visible, Our Voices Heard" - The Political Cost of Exclusion
    "We Must be Visible, Our Voices Heard" - The Political Cost of Exclusion Commissioned by OutRight International and produced by a South African Production Company, Doti Productions, the film highlights the challenges faced by African LGBTIQ citizens who face state institutionalized homophobia, violence and draconian laws that violate all their basic human rights. It looks specifically at the exclusion of LGBTIQ Africans from the political sphere and how this impacts on every aspect of their lives. “LGBTI people are made invisible in political space and democratic processes and as a result then get excluded from agendas such as health, education, safety etc,” Zak Mbele, South Africa’s first gay Member of Parliament is quoted as saying. LGBTI Activist, Melanie Judge, captures the sue succinctly and accurately: “Politics is about Power and Power is everywhere…part of being a citizen in a country is to be able to participate in the affairs of that country – to be able to claim political space for your voice to be heard and to participate in civil decision making.” Most African LGBTIQ citizens are denied that basic and fundamental right.
  • "Don't Waste Our Talents" - The Economic Cost of Exclusion
    "Don't Waste Our Talents" - The Economic Cost of Exclusion Commissioned by OutRight International and produced by a South African Production Company, Doti Productionz, this films looks briefly at the economic inclusion of LGBTIQ Africans. “The most important thing of any economy is the freedom to be who you are. To offer your talents and not to be excluded through color bar or sexuality,” explains Xhanti Payi an economist with Nascence Advisory and Research. Pierre Brouard, Deputy Director for the Study of Aids South Africa, cites a recent study on emerging economies that showed a link between more progressive climates for LGBTI people and other economic indicators in society.
