UK, Kenya, USA. 2020. 20 mins. English.

Is it possible to be African, Christian and gay? The first LGBT church in Nairobi Kenya definitely believe so. The Cosmopolitan Affirming Community, known affectionately as CAC, seeks to promote an inclusive and progressive form of Christianity, in a rather conservative society.

The UK Premiere was part of a double bill and was screened alongside Peter Murimi’s I Am Samuel.
