Your Silence Will Not Protect You: (Re) presenting Resilience – The Black South African Lesbian; Activism and the Individual

2012 Graduating Senior at Williams College, Bridget Ngcobo has utilized a multi-media format to present her thesis, “Your Silence Will Not Protect You: (Re) presenting Resilience – The Black South African Lesbian; Activism and the Individual.” You can check it out here.

This thesis explores the ways black lesbians and non-conformist gender identified individuals in South Africa navigate their identify in the midst of tumultuous terrain circumstances, where there is a clear disconnect between the laws that wholly support black lesbians and gender non-conformists, and cultural perceptions where same-sex relationships are considered “un-African.”

Through interviews with iHawu (a group located in the Township of Katlehong founded in 2011 to combat violence against lesbians), photographer and artist Zanele Muholi, and Professor Zethu Matebeni (University of Cape Town), Bridget has compiled a fascinating and engaging digital resource that critically engages contemporary activism among members of LGBTQ communities in South Africa.
