LGBT Africa

The BFI 24th Lesbian and Gay Film Festival hosted a special screening of three films that explore the challenging situations faced by LGBT people in certain parts of Africa, which was followed by a Q and A with the filmmakers as well as LGBT activists, hosted by festival programmer Nazmia Jamal. The director and writer behind Mosa, Victoria Pilkington and Ana Moreno, talk about how they came across the story for their film, a short looking at the treatment of lesbians in South Africa. Director Michael Lebor explains the process behind his documentary, based on the church House of Rainbows in Nigeria, around the time of their second anniversary. Finally activists Skye Chirape and Adebisi Ademola Alimi bring to light the challenges faced by LGBT communities in Africa and how we can help bring about change.
