Two white male Afrikaans gay academics decide to respond to a call for papers to be
presented at a conference with the theme “Gardens of justice” in Stockholm, Sweden
in 2012. In the course of their attempt to co-author an academic paper on the history
of the struggle for sexual minority freedom in South Africa, they are confronted by
their own histories, contradictions, literary influences and context - confrontations
that ultimately mirror the instability of subjectivity and the valences of a critically
queer positionality in post-apartheid South Africa.
