This is the face of South African lesbian who was beaten and raped for five hours by a man who told her he wanted to “turn her into a woman”. This is the face of a warrior who despite all odds, trauma, and police victimization, found her way to Court today by public transportation, to testify against her brutal attacker, who remained free on bail to -in essence- board the same bus. The Police were simply not willing to give this young woman a ride to the Court.

Millicent was in severe shock and traumatized to the point of wanting to kill herself. She made contact with me mere days after it happened through Ndumie Funda from Luleki Sizwe, a small unfunded groups that helped Millicent and other survivors. Millicent sent me the shocking photos with a brave plea to publish them so the world could see. It was then I realized that I was dealing with an extraordinary group of young women. This bravery continued as today Millicent was able to testify in Court, despite threats on her life and the release of the perpetraitor back into the same neighborhood, on minimal bail.
