Born This Way

There are more arrests for homosexuality in Cameroon than any other country in the world. Born This Way steps outside the genre of activist filmmaking and offers a vivid and poetic portrait of the underground gay and lesbian community in the country.

There are more arrests for homosexuality in Cameroon than any other country in the world. Born This Way steps outside the genre of activist filmmaking and offers a vivid and poetic portrait of the underground gay and lesbian community in the country. It follows Cedric and Gertrude, two young Cameroonians, as they move between a secret, supportive LGBT community and an outside culture that, though intensely homophobic, is in transition toward greater acceptance.  Lyrical imagery, devastating homophobia, the influence of western culture and a hidden-camera courtroom drama mysteriously coalesce into a powerful story of what is possible in the global fight for equality.
