11th Annual Soweto Pride March

 

South Africa, 26 September 2015

Forum for the Empowerment of Women (FEW) organized yet another successful Soweto pride march.

 

This is a day for the LGBTI community to be seen and heard and for us to claim a safe public and political space. This year's 11th annual pride was in honour of the late lesbian women, Sizakele Sigasa and Salume Masooa, who were brutally murdered in Soweto, Meadowlands 2007.
