Do share your coming out stories with us in the comment section. 🙂
A queer woman named K travels to visit family in Somalia. After a few weeks, she disappears. Her friends back home in Minneapolis feared the worst and set out to find her and bring her home.
It all began with a call for pitches on the AfroQueer social media pages which turned into a full-blown quest to find the filmmaker behind one of the first feature-length LGBTQ+ films ever made in West Africa.
In this episode we journey with Tshepo Ricki Kgositau through her experience of gender transitioning that led to her finally living fully in her true identity.
