Der Spiegel, (DE)

Picked up for yesterdays Der Spiegel but originally commisioned by The Daily Telegraph (UK) my portrait of Annet Negesa. This was my original comments to earlier this year: Ugandan female Athlete Annet Negesa photographed near the LGBTQ refugee centre she is now staying at in Treptow Park, Berlin, Germany. Annet was born with internal male organs which meant that her body produced a higher level of testosterone than other female atheletes she was competing with. It is called Differences in Sex Development (DSD), effectively a woman born with internal male organs. However, on discovery of this from race track testing by the International Association of Athletics Federation it was  deemed that she had to lower her testosterone level. Persuaded in 2012 to undergo surgery to remove the male testies in her body she has since developed many medical complications. Also claiming that the medical procedure itself was not fully explained to her. Advice given such as; ‘Its just like having an injection' were clearly far from the truth of what the consequences for her own body would be. Due to the high profile of her case she is now seeking asylum in Germany. Afraid to return to Uganda with her  'Sexual' status outed and the inherent hostility within her home country from political and religious leaders to her sexual status. Just last month it was reported that a gender nonconforming LGBTIQ+ activist was brutally murdered in his own home. “Hacked in the head with a gardening tool,” according to Sexual Minorities Uganda. In the brief time i met Annet i found her a very shy and unassuming person.  Slightly embarrased to be photographed but understanding it was part of the interview process for the piece in The Daily Telegraph that came out yesterday. I wish her all the luck in the world.
