Coming out to yourself can be as hard as sharing it with others. Tawiah M’Carthy’s captivating hero is caught between worlds – gay and straight, black and white, African and North American. Through storytelling, dance, and live music, Obaaberima (“girlboy”) chronicles young Agyeman’s journey from confused childhood in Ghana to mature Canadian adulthood.
