Zethu Matebeni has survived UCT and Cape Town since August 2011. This is no small achievement. The history of the Cape has weird resonances on everyday life on black queer bodies. When not with Free Gender or at Huma, Zethu takes uncomfortable occupation in white gay spaces in Cape Town. This year, Zethu is co-ordinating the "Queer in Africa" symposium focusing on "the Cape Town Question". Get on the touring bus on October 6th and discover the Cape Town no one will ever tell you about.
