Black Beulahs

47mins | 2009 | LGBTTVPG
BLACK BEULAHS is a documentary that explores the lives of three friends living within the largely unexplored Soweto gay sub-culture. There's Somizi - choreographer and entertainer; DK - a businessman who owns a funeral parlour and Chix - a body builder. They've defied societal expectations to live their lives as they see fit. It is a revealing personal portrait by director Fanney Tsimong of three people intersecting with changing sexual values and a community struggling with the reality of homosexuality in its midst. This is an engrossing and remarkable addition to the depiction of gay experiences in South Africa.
