"In Cameroon there are still constant arrests for homosexuality compared to any other country in the world. With intimate access to the lives of four young gay Cameroonians, Born This Way steps outside the genre of activist film-making and offers a vivid and poetic portrait of day-to-day life in modern Africa. Lyrical imagery, devastating homophobia, the influence of western culture and a hidden-camera courtroom drama mysteriously coalesce into a story of what is possible in the global fight for equality. The filmmakers had to film everything clandestinely."
"A documentary about coming of age as gay and lesbian in Cameroon"
"A documentary about risking everything to be who you are."
