It’s all kicking off in holiday hotspot, Sea Point. Here’s my latest podcast about the growing resistance movements in South Africa. This time I went to find out about Reclaim the City’s fight to stop the Tafelberg sell off. Workers in the area say the land must be used to provide affordable housing.

Kwa Ntliziyondise is an audio drama (currently being recorded) based on the issues faced by gay and lesbian youth living in the township of Khayelitsha in Cape Town, South Africa. The drama is an inclusive project created, written and performed by a group of youth from different parts of Khayelitsha selected through a process facilitated by Health4Men and Free Gender. The audio drama will offer a space to gay and lesbian youth to voice their experiences and create stories that personify their dreams, fears and aspirations. The series aims to foster greater understanding and tolerance for a way of life that isn’t easily accepted in the community. Through authentic representation of the challenges of LGBTI youth the series will open up a space for reflection, empathy and action towards reducing stigma and discrimination.
