Dark Side of Paradise - Correct raping
Although South Africa’s laws make it one of the most liberal nations in Africa on gay rights, there is a horrible phenomenon of rape against lesbians in townships. This documentary tells the unbelievably heroic and tragic stories of women that were particularly targeted for gang rape to “correct” them of their sexual preference.
