Organization Spotlight: Out in Africa - South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

The Out In Africa South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (OIA). The Festival seeks to address the lack of visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex individuals (LGBTIs) in South African social and cultural life after decades of apartheid repression, to counter negative images of LGBTIs that prevail in traditional and religious communities, and to serve as a platform for discussion and debate about the situation of LGBTIs in a newly founded democracy.

This is awesome. I have always felt gays and lesbians were underrepresented in the media not to mention that people do not understand us. I am writing a book that focuses on homosexuality and religion. I'm glad to see that South Africa is taking a stand after such a long history of cruelty to minorities.
