Muholi, who describes herself as a "visual activist," has spent years documenting the lives of black lesbians and transgender people in South Africa. "We live in fear," Muholi said. "And what are we doing about it? You have to document. You are forced to document." The film was shot and directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrallo—the filmmakers behind the award winning documentary "Call Me Kuchu" which told the story of the last year of the life of the Ugandan LGBT activist David Kato.

The video is dedicated to the memory of Duduzile Zozo, who was brutally raped and murdered in Thokoza, Gauteng Province in South Africa on June 30.
