Queer Relations is a shorts program: multiple films are part of this screening, with a total runtime of 70 minutes, plus a Q&A following the film program.

In 2021, aspiring chef Phelokazi Ndlwana was stabbed to death because she fought back against her rapist. She was targeted specifically because she was a proud black lesbian, beloved in her home community of Khayelitsha Township, South Africa, and the latest victim in a national epidemic of homophobic violence. Funeka Soldaat and her activist group Free Gender in Khayelitsha took the police to court, alleging incompetence and corruption in Phelokazi's case. Ndodana-Breen and Greyson have crafted an operatic cine-poem inspired by Phelokazi's story, featuring vocals by mezzo-soprano Chantelle Grant.

Watch this film as part of our shorts program "Queer Relations" in the ReFrame Virtual Theatre.

"Peterborough-Nogojiwanong Pride” exists to support & celebrate people of all sexual orientations and gender identities; honour and give thanks to those who have come before us and contribute to the resilient spirit and courage of the present struggle for our human rights. Pride Week has been celebrated since 2003 and has grown into a week of over 30 events events in mid-September each year. The 2SLGBTQA+ community is diverse and spans and intersects the full spectrum of race, age, ability, and economic status. Ultimately, Pride events are intended to provide a space for participants to gather, share ideas, speak their minds, support each other, and have fun in a safe and accepting environment.
