Remembering Zoliswa Nkonyana, South African lesbian who was murdered on 4th of Feb 2006.
So many lesbians have been raped and murdered but their stories barely become news worthy. It’s ironic that in South Africa where LGBTI people have constitutional protection therefore can be regarded as being in a different space from for example Uganda. But the still the violence against Black lesbians and trans women continues to happen and to go unreported.
Zoliswa will be remembered today in Khayelitsha, Cape Town by her family, friends and colleagues.
