A group of third year Film and Media Studies students at the University of Cape Town (UCT) have produced a web-based interactive documentary which looks at the relationship between language and queer identity in South Africa.
The Queer Me Out Project uses multiple media to look at limitations of language in forming queer identity, and reclaiming discriminatory terms.
Now, this group of students is looking to take this project to the next level.
They would like your assistance to identify words from South Africa's many languages which can be used to discuss Queerness through an interactive dictionary.
Co-producer Jessica Barraclough shares more on the project.

There is transsexual, transgender, bi-gender and so on.— Jessica Barraclough, Co-producer
Usually someone who is trans will tell you what their preferred pronoun is...— Jessica Barraclough, Co-producer
