Now On View in the Toni Rembe Freedom Theater

“I was in Africa for the first time, I am 31 years old, African American, and there I was… on the continent in which civilization as we know it was born, the land which birthed my race, for the very first time.”

Out Of This World, an i-D documentary series, journeys with American rapper and activist Mykki Blanco as he explores queer culture in Johannesburg. Captured intimately in an experimental hybrid-documentary by director Matt Lambert, Mykki meets boundary pushing artists Umilio and FAKA, designer Rich Mnisi and Bradley and Nkulsey, a model and dancer of the ‘Born Free’ generation—all using their platforms to give a voice to issues surrounding the politics of their sexuality, gender, identity and humanity. As we make our way through the creative epicenter that is South Africa’s biggest city, join us in celebrating the thriving alternative queer scene.
