Preview Screening: The Pearl of Africa + Q&A
The Pearl of Africa is a story about Cleopatra Kambugu, a 28 year old Ugandan transgender woman. Born biologically male, she is transitioning into the woman she knows she was born to be – in one of the most transphobic places in the world. Forced to leave her country and loving boyfriend behind, she sets out to fight for her right to love and, against all odds, to become the first accepted trans person in Uganda.
