Frank Lileza (26) came out to his grandmother when he was eight years old. He recognises how fortunate he has been to have a family that accepts his sexuality. Many from the Mozambican LGBTQI+ community are ostracised by their families. Wider society has not been as accepting: ''I am a homosexual man, but all the time I was kind of having some girls' style, like the way I walk, the way I talk, the way I express myself. And people would notice that. People were actually saying some very ugly names because the way I was expressing myself, the way I was standing myself in being in this environment''.
