By his own account, Vogue Nights Jozi is “a start of a particular revolution – one that places bodies of gay, transgender men and women, non-binary, bisexual, lesbian, femme and queer-identifying folks into the front the nightlife spaces that cater so little for the community.”
What Zane Lelo Meslani — popularly known as Lelowhatsgood — together with Woke Arts achieved on 29 June at the J&B Hive was uniting queer Johannesburg in a way that has never been done before.
