Abstract:Long before the emergence of the post-Stonewall gay scene in Cape Town, South Africa, gay life in District Six was out in the open, and an accepted part of this racially and religiously diverse community. Kewpie's world revolved around her hairdressing salon, a meeting place where the 'girls' organized 'moffie' concerts, drag balls, and cabaret performances. Through her amazing collection of snapshots, Kewpie narrates these stories, taking us through District Six, her world, and her memories. [Abstract reproduced from video]
