Synopsis

Stories of our Lives was created by Nairobi art collective The NEST who spent several months travelling across Kenya collecting stories of young LGBT people in a country that is still extremely homophobic. Issues like concealment or, on the other hand, affirmation of one's own identity as also the fight to be accepted are expressed in poignant, highly poetic first-hand accounts. Banned in Kenya on the grounds of obscenity, the film is a strong expression of the hopes and courage of women and men who are hardly inclined to bury their heads in the sand.
