Mbekweni, Paarl, South Africa. 17 November 2009. Sisipho Ndzuzo and Siphokazi Kula. It is a common believe that it is unnatural for Africans to be gay. In 2007 Banyana-Banyana (SA national womens’ team) midfielder, Eudy Simelane was gang raped and stabbed to death. The discrimination in their community caused a group of young lesbians in Mbekweni township to come togther and form their own soccer team, a place where they use to feel safe. Photo: Simone Scholtz
