VIDEO REPORT: Homosexuality in Black & White
We have reported on stories such as the killing of Zoliswa Nkonyana who was stoned to death in Khayelitsha because she was a lesbian, which provoked outrage amongst activists. This story and many similar ones in Cape Town made us decide on focusing on homosexuality with our second video. Our goal with the homosexuality video was to show how differently gays and lesbians are treated in South Africa.
* The short video insert was produced by the trainees in the Bushradio newsroom as part of their training at the station. Besides their radio duties, the volunteer run newsroom is exploring ways to use basic technology to share news content in a converged media environment.
The video was shot using a Canon PowerShot A22 camera and edited on Windows Movie Maker.
