Nest Collective with Stories of Our Lives—An Anthology Film (Kenya, 2014, 62 min)

On June 30, 2013, members of The Nest Collective, a Nairobi-based arts collective, began collecting and archiving the stories of persons identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex from Kenya. Stories of Our Lives consists of five black and white vignettes that document the queer Kenyan experience.
