Call for Justice for South Africa's Golden Girl
As we reflect on Workers' Day today, 1 May, it is ironic that one of our most successful athletes’ career hangs in the balance because of the discrimination she has had to endure in the world of sport based on her classification as an intersex person. Socially, her dignity has been targeted on account of her lesbian sexuality and masculine gender expression. From high hopes to shattered dreams! Today we have experienced a major setback in the ‘so-called' era of advancing human rights and respect for diversity, globally.

Brief Open Response to the Vice-Chancellor of UCT on the question of naming/shaming communication, 6th September
Mon, 09 Dec 2019 - 16:30

Dear Vice Chancellor Phakeng,
Over the past few years, womxn (and sometimes others) at UCT have often fought publicly against the realities of the intensive and complex gender-based violences in South Africa, and on our campus. These realities have been brought home to us, again, in a terrible way in the past two weeks. As the African Gender Institute/Gender Studies, we honour the students who have rallied so fiercely in the past two weeks to fight for Uyinene Mrweytana and against gender-based violence. We also send thanks to you for your tireless energy in the past days, as you have worked with your team to communicate, to honour Uyinene Mrwetyana, and to open spaces for the essential dialogues needed.

We write now in the spirit of that work.

Queer Feminist Film Festival 2019
Thu, 02 May 2019 - 12:15

Queer Feminist Film Festival (QFFF) is making a comeback to Bertha Movie House in Khayelitsha, Cape
Town, on the 24th and 25th of May 2019! Last year’s event was a huge success and, it only made sense
to make do it again.
QFFF is a feminist film festival for the LGBTQIA+ community to come together in celebration of queer
organizing, our experiences and sharing knowledge. And, it's the first of its kind locally!
Through the film festival, we’re working towards engaging and countering the disconnect between
queer and/ or feminist activists, creatives and the broader community. We're here to bring the queer
and/ or feminist community together!
