The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Friday, November 7: If you live in Toronto, Los Angeles, or New York, catch a glimpse of The World Unseen, a movie that simultaneously grapples with the themes of race and sexuality in apartheid South Africa. Set in 1950s Cape Town, the story unfolds as free-spirited Amina breaks with her traditional Indian community to open a small caf' that serves as a safe haven for people of all walks of life. When Amina meets Miriam, a young traditional wife and mother who lives in the neighborhood and visits the coffee shop, the two women realize that sexuality isn't black and white.

Saturday, November 8: Tonight gays in Tampa can catch Clive Barker's play The History of the Devil at the The Shimberg Playhouse at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center.
