Beyond the Mountain: Queer life in Africa's Gay Capital
Beyond the Mountain depicts the lives of the LGBTQI community and the seemingly immovable, negative perceptions that the general public holds of them. It seeks to expose their world and the kinds of violence and abuse to which they are subjected, as well as to unveil the racial discrimination within these communities.
The book contributes to the body of knowledge on the plight of LGBTQI communities of Cape Town, South Africa. This is a collection that historically, metaphorically and physically spans the city promoting the rights and the protection of the community. The chapters are narratives of lived experiences and academic discussions from novice and experienced scholars on the themes of education, emancipation, protection, acceptance and integration of LBGTQO people in society.
