It WILL Get Better Africa Campaign Launched

Published: March 5, 2011

Outspoken Radio has officially launched the It WILL Get Better Africa campaign offering a message of hope to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons. The campaign has a YouTube Channel for LGBTI Africans to speak out.

    Now South African-based actor, playwright and radio presenter Frank Malaba, has initiated an African version of the campaign, called ‘It Will Get Better Africa’, through Radio Outspoken – the weekly LGBT radio show.

    "The intention is to present supportive messages and stories to help people who are struggling, showing them that there are LGBT people on African soil who are living positive lives in relative freedom," Malaba told Mambaonline.

    "It’s a positive space for people, LGBT and straight, to be able to speak out," he said.

    Malaba has kicked off the campaign with his own video message which can be viewed below.

    He revealed that Justice Edwin Cameron, the openly gay Constitutional Court Judge, has agreed to record a video for the campaign and Malaba added that he has also approached a number of MPs from the ANC and DA.

    He urged anyone who has a positive message or story to record a video and post it on the YouTube channel. "They don’t have to have a title or be famous as long as their message ends with the phrase ‘It will get better’", said Malaba.
