In this edition of the GALA Times, the GALA fam consider mental health in light of Covid-19, the national lockdown and the conversations it has sparked around self-care and care for others. GALA’s director, Keval, reflects on the comfort he finds in food. Our programmes coordinator, Genevieve, challenges us to take an active role in shaping what is the ‘new normal’ rather than allowing ourselves to fall into toxic habits.
This month’s Archive Spotlight focusses on the Gay Advice Bureau (GAB), South Africa’s first gay counseling service. For our Featured Fam section we chat to Mwenya Kabwe about family, the lockdown and her award winning play, No Easter Sunday for Queers.
