Love and pride

30 July: Day 6 The second last day of DIFF was my best day of all. I saw four films and they all have one thing in common - queer cinema - although the content is very different.

I see myself as an afficionado of gay cinema and could not wait for the films ...

Durban Fest: From Nigeria to Iran

Durban, 26 July: Day 2 The miserable weather is busy getting the better of me as I spent most of the day in bed.

Nestled in one corner of the museum entrance, a huge display of photographs leading to a sm...
