The award-winning Stories of Our Lives is an anthology of five minidramas with LGBT themes from the East African republic of Kenya. It was made by the Nairobi-based art and activist group The Nest Collective, many of whose members prefer to conceal their identities to avoid possible persecution under Kenya’s notoriously draconian anti-gay laws. Despite its acclaim and awards abroad, Stories of our Lives remains banned in Kenya, and last summer, the country’s Republican Liberty Party proposed a controversial “stone the gays” legislation. In spite of this, the members of The Nest Collective have opted to stay in Kenya and fight openly for their human rights and are determined to continue their struggle for recognition.
