“The Otherside” is a documentary series taking you on a journey across the continent and exploring the extreme, unfamiliar African Story. The series takes its audience from stories about female wrestlers in Senegal to the liberating LGBTQ youths in Côte d’Ivoire. Each episode on “The Otherside” surpasses barriers and boundaries that creates a refreshed perspective of the often misrepresented Sub-Saharan Africa. This episode, “Les Autres,” follows a queer female, a male transgender and a female transgender all coping with life in the new Abidjan, where it has become a safe haven for people in the LGBTQ community in the whole west Africa.
