Celebrating the Freak: Images of Two Township Genderqueers

Luciano and Lunga are biological boys living in Alex and Tembisa. They identify as both male and female. While the way they express their gender and their sexual orientation could get them beaten and/or raped and/or killed, they choose to be themselves, to “celebrate The Freak”. These images are a celebration of The Freak, a celebration and salute to them being them, to their integrity, honesty and bravery.
