Abstract: »The article reflects on the importance of Zanele Muholi's photographic series Faces and Phases and its critique of the limited ability of the Constitution to secure material equality for black queer persons in contemporary South Africa. It examines how the portraits of black lesbian and trans men shed light on the persistent homophobic violence that arrest the development of an egalitarian society in post-apartheid South Africa.« (Source: Radical History Review)
