Rainbow Girls: Terra

Photographer's Name: 
Julia Gunther

Undeterred by daily threats of violence, constant intimidation and the risk of being cast out by their own families, the lesbian women of Gugulethu and Khayelitsha township continue to fight for the right to be themselves. 'Rainbow Girls' documents lesbian women living in townships in Africa. All of the women in this project have suffered in some way, but they are all still proud - of who they are, of their lives and the love they represent.
