This archive is not available anywhere else, and it constitutes an essential resource!
This website includes information from a critical period in South African trans and intersex history from the perspective of activists who were deeply involved. Folks included here did critical work for and with trans and intersex communities across Africa, and it is amazing to see how the organizers of this archive documented histories and memories.
Congratulations for launching this vital, brilliant and beautiful initiative.
The ambition to counter the predominance of South Africa in the existing scholarship on lgbtiq+ struggles is another extremely welcome aspect of it. The accessibility of language meanwhile fulfils a longtime aspiration of many of us academic workers, that is, to render very challenging research, subtle and shifting identities, and complex ideas into a language that is open to a much broader audience than we eggheads tend to reach. Bravo!
A very emotional tale! This website feels like a time machine
The website is a great reminder of what can change in our societies when people dedicate their lives to fighting oppressive systems and beliefs. The milestones articulated in the website gives meaning for the trauma people got from the wars and struggle for liberation. This should be a must-read for young and upcoming changemakers.
Congratulations on this wonderful and well-representing work.
This brought back so many memories. TIA definitely welcomes this work, and we are very proud to be part of such a vibrant movement. I confirm that our information is well documented, and TIA endorse this initiative.
We welcome the launch of the website.
We recognise the website’s educational and political consciousness-raising value in the now and for the future. It is a great resource as it provides a clear overview of how trans and intersex organising has provoked, encouraged and inspired legal and social transformation despite the odds.
