South Afria: lesbian photo-activist

Sokari, who is visiting South Africa, writes about Zanele Muholi, a South African lesbian photo-activist: “Met Zanele Muholi, a lesbian photographer-activist. Progressive, radical, beautiful, challenging. Zanele took the photos behind “Tommy boys, lesbian men and ancestral wives” and is also the Community Relations Officer at FEW (Forum for the Empowerment of Women).”

    Dear reader,
    I would like to get in touch with Funeke Soldaat from Kyaelitsha whom I saw on a TV program (about the black lesbians being raped). She is a lesbian activist and I would like to get in touch with her.
    I am a lesbian myself and have lived most of my life in S.Africa. I would like to see if I could be of any help.
    Thanks and greetings,
    Maria Boukateros
