Street Talk

Coming Out (Video)

By Street Talk 27 January 2020

Why is it when someone comes out as gay, we immediately turn to labels? Why does our sexuality define our identities? In a special episode straight from Zimbabwe, we speak to a group of openly out people who discuss the struggles of living in an extremely conservative, and at times, dangerous country. We look at the labels and discriminations they face every day and explore what life is like for the LGBTIQ community in Zimbabwe.

This film was produced by Street Talk.
