Are You a Girl or What?

Documentary South Africa Sweden 2007

Love, oppression, poverty and fellowship – a documentary about being a young lesbian in Johannesburg. Although South Africa has the oldest legislation concerning Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender-rights, the difference between the official standpoint and the every day life of the inhabitants are vast. The years of apartheid leave their scars, not only in racist structures and oppression but also in the common attitude that homosexuality is un-African. In a backyard in the township of Katlehong, a group of young lesbian let us ask questions about their lives and how they survive in a sexist, homophobic and often violent surrounding.
