Sonke host event for Hate Crimes Working Group SA

Sonke, as part of the Hate Crimes Working Group SA, was proud to host over 60 people at the Bioscope in the Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg, last night for the screening of Laura Fletcher’s award-winning documentary, ‘African Pride’.

Winner of Best Human Rights Documentary at Galway Film Fleadh 2014 and the Green Rose for Best Documentary with a Global Message at the Jaipur International Film Festival 2015, ‘African Pride’ shares the stories of lesbian women in South Africa’s townships who are meeting homophobic violence with visibility.

Sonke’s Demelza Bush facilitated a Q & A session with Laura Fletcher and Phindi Malaza from the Forum for the Empowerment of Women.
