“Why do sexual minorities exist? Who are they and how do they live? How different are their everyday lives, and does that threaten mine? How similar or different are we and in what ways do our lives and experiences intersect? With these questions, “Just Like Us” becomes the beginning of a journal about the lives of queer friends, who I call participants, and others I meet along the way who have and will possibly lend themselves to this continuous visual record of daily, ordinary life that exists outside of the heteronormative, yet also within it — a record of our existence and eventually as part of the cumulative history of Ghana.
Watch grantee Eric Gyamfi present “Just Like Us,” and his participatory exhibition “See Me See You.”
