Black Beulahs is a documentary that explores the lives of three friends living within the largely unexplored Soweto gay sub-culture.

There’s Somizi - the very well known choreographer and entertainer; DK - a businessman who owns a funeral parlour; and Chix - the bisexual body builder.

They’ve defied societal expectations to live their lives as they see fit. It is a revealing personal portrait by director Fanney Tsimong of three people intersecting with changing sexual values and a community struggling with the reality of homosexuality in its midst.

An engrossing and remarkable addition to the depiction of gay experiences in South Africa as revealed by a young gay black director.
