Black Drag Magic

Black Drag Magic
by Lee-ann Olwage


Belinda Qaqamba Ka-Fassie, a drag artist and activist, poses at a shisanyama - a community space where women cook and sell meat - in Khayelitsha, a township near Cape Town. Belinda, the photographer, and other black, queer, gender non-conforming and transgender people collaborated in a project to reclaim public spaces in a community where they are subject to discrimination, harassment, and violence.
