Queer Families

Sometimes AIAC collaborator Nerina Penzhorn’s documentary, “Waited For,” about interracial adoptions in South Africa of mostly black children by a group of mainly white lesbian women, has been accepted to Frameline, considered the largest LGBT film festival in the country. According to Nerina, the film “… explores the ways in which these queer families challenge and are challenged by the traditional hierarchies of race and heterosexism that are still deeply entrenched in the South African psyche.”
