Netball coach

South Africa

Nokuthula grew up not knowing that she was lesbian. She was called a “Tom-boy” and many other hurtful names over the years. She experienced “corrective rape” because she was lesbian. She had numerous suicide attempts and today Nokuthula uses her story to spread awareness and prevent homophobia. She has also formed a netball team for young girls which she uses as a platform where those who are not heterosexual can come out in a safe space and also receive support from their fellow team members and the coaches.
