Thandiwe Msebenzi

Qgwashu Qgwashu

Qgwashu Qgwashu reflects on the impact of violent masculinity roles through the story of a young man who grew up not conforming to society's idea of masculinity. Teased for being weak and soft, he eventually gives in to the violent masculine norms to the point that his own community becomes afraid of him.
