Live Panel: To be Kenyan, Christian and Queer

Sunday 8 November  | 15:30 | Online

Join directors Aiwan Obinyan and Peter Murimi in conversation about their films, Kenyan, Christian, Queer and I am Samuel, alongside Kenyan LGBTQ activists working on the ground.

The panellists will discuss the broader context of life in Kenya’s LGBTQ community, as well as the eternal contradictions of Christianity, as the historical driving force behind much of the country’s homophobia, but also as a progressive site for queer inclusion, joy and acceptance.

Panelists:
Aiwan Obinyan, Director of Kenyan, Christian, Queer
Peter Murimi, Director of I am Samuel
David Ochar, Co-Founder of Cosmopolitan Affirming Community (CAC)
Festus Kisa, Director of Q-Initiative (C.B.O)

Moderator: Kevin Mwachiro, writer, activist and founder of Out Film Festival.

In partnership with Scotland’s Africa in Motion Film Festival.
