In this podcast, human rights and youth activist Scaly Kep’na addresses the situation of LGTB+ people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo from precolonial times through to the present, where stigmatization due to deeply-held religious and popular beliefs is commonplace.
As part of a journey that has historical origins, he invites the activist Junior Basosila, from the city of Goma, to discuss the fight against discrimination and prejudice and to imagine a way towards a better future. This conversation is a call for integration and acceptance in a country whose cultural context largely refuses to accept and respect the humanity of those who do not fit heteronormativity.
