PhotoXP Community Outreach Project- LGBTI Women Doing Their Thing

[slideshow]

Greatmore Studios collaborated with reknowned visual activist Zanele Muholi for an outreach project tailored for LGBTI community whose voices are rarely documented and repoted on.  With fellow photographer and facilitator Lindeka Qampi, Muholi crafted a course plan that would teach participants basic photography skills and visual story telling techniques using their homes and immediate enviroments as characters in their final story submissions.The participants ranged in ages from 21 to 31, all of them lesbians from areas in and around the township of Khayelitsha.

The above pictures were of the exhibition and celebration of these young women and their incredible work.
