At a time when LGBTQI rights around the world are being stripped away, it’s more important than ever to highlight stories from places that punish you for being who you are. An excellent documentary about prejudice against the lesbian and gay community in Cameroon, “Born This Way” does exactly that. Filming with secret cameras and under constant threat of being discovered and deported, the filmmakers follow four brave gay and lesbian Cameroonians who discuss candidly the difficulty of being queer in a country where homosexuality is illegal.

While the reality of life is bleak, the film shows there is hope, whether it is inside the sanctuaries that exist like CAMEFAIDS (& CAMEF), or being defended by the amazing human rights lawyer, Alice Nkom. This event is a benefit for CAMEF.

Co-sponsored by CAMEF and the BFUU Social Justice Committee.
Suggested donation $10 sliding scale
