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.

There will also be a screening of Peter Murimi’s I Am Samuel as part of this double bill.

*There will also be a live online panel discussion featuring both directors titled ‘To be Kenyan, Christian & Queer’, held in partnership with Africa in Motion Film Festival, on Sunday 8 November, at 3:30pm. Register here.
