Accusing it of “promoting lesbianism”, the Kenyan Film and Classification Board banned the film Rafiki in Kenya for seven months. The director of the film, Wanuri Kahui, sued the government and won the case, allowing her to screen the film in Kenya for seven days only. We went to the very first screening of Rafiki in Nairobi, and bring you this review of the film.

This episode was reported by Aida Holly-Nambi with additional reporting by Halima Gikandi. Produced by Selly Thiam, Aida Holly-Nambi and Maeve Frances. Technical support by Rachel Wamoto, who is also AfroQueer's social media manager.
