Overview

In Nairobi, a small community of transgender and intersex Kenyans living on the edge of society face suspicion and outright hostility. Quietly spoken Sidney, whose family thought he was possessed by demons, talks candidly about being shunned by his parents and subjected to violence. After fleeing his family home, life is a daily struggle in the city. Guillit, a transboi activist, provides support and friendship to those who society rejects, including Sidney and his loyal best friend, Ben. Maria, a glamorous trans woman, wants to put her abusive past behind her and pursue a modelling career overseas. Compassionate, eye-opening and ultimately uplifting, Sidney & Friends provides a rare glimpse into a hidden world, drawing attention to the challenges LGBTIQ communities face in Africa.
