“Seeking Asylum”: Short Films on LGBTI Africans

by: In Our Words Staff

None on Record Feb 15

Thanks to the watchful eye of a contributor, we found these two short films entered in the PBS Online festival.  “Seeking Asylum”  consists of:

Two short movies charting the lives of two queer Africans as they seek asylum … The movies are directed by Selly Thiam, Executive Director of None on Record, a digital media project that collects the stories of LGBTI Africans. There are two movies, “Asylum – Bisi” and “Asylum – Skye.” Please take a moment to watch the videos and vote for your favorite video. They are powerful vids and people need to be aware of the harsh reality African LGBTI face for daring to be themselves. Thanks!

Please view and vote.
