"In 2013 we began collecting and archiving the stories of persons identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex from Kenya. We called this project "Stories of Our Lives" - and we wanted to do this project for many reasons, but mostly because we wanted to tell stories that are not often heard, stories that characterize the queer experience in Kenya" – they both say.

The movie was awarded with the Teddy Jury Award at the Berlinale 2015.
