Halala! Mzansi’s First Gay Movie Premieres On Showmax

No hiding here, South Africa’s first gay movie will premiere on Showmax come next week Thursday.

Set in a small South African town, the movie is based on a drama teacher who accidentally plays gay porn over the biggest school event of the year. This forces him, the event’s guest and featured artist as well as a closeted big city celebrity, into hiding from the outraged community.

Written and directed by actor Gabe Gabriel, No Hiding Here stars 2020 Fleur du Cap winner Earl Gregory (the stage production of Kinky Boots), David Viviers (from Kanarie, Rage and Tali’s Baby Diary),Tiffany Barbuzano (from Still Breathing), multi-award-winning theatre legend Antoinette Kellerman (from Mad Max: Fury Road), and Phumzile Sitole (from Star Trek: Discovery, Orange is the New Black and The Good Fight).

Moreover, No Hiding Here is produced by Nagvlug Films, who also made the horror movie Rage and the upcoming Showmax Original Skemerdans.

In recent days the LGTBQIA2+ community in South Africa has been up in arms with the heterosexual community over lack of recognition and appreciation.

Although the LGTBQIA2+ community is permitted in South Africa, there is still some form of resistance from other communities who don’t acknowledge anyone from that community regardless of the Constitution giving them consent to go on with their lives. As a result some members of the LGBTQIA2+ community continue to incur torture and insults with some even getting killed.

However, the LGBTQIA2+ community continues to create awareness through social media and other platforms encouraging the heterosexual community to embrace them and appreciate who they are regardless of the difference sexual orientation.

In most African countries there are stringent and punitive measures that are taken if one is found to be part of the LGBTQIA2+ community.
