Shell LGBTI+ Network presents OUT with generous donation

The panellists included the likes of choreographer and Idols judge Somizi Mhlongo, Chairman of Shell South Africa Bonang Mohale, Constitutional Court Justice Edwin Cameron and Chairman of Business Unity South Africa, Adv. Brenda Madumise.

The enlightening conversation between the panellists and the audience was facilitated by author, commentator and radio presenter Eusebius McKaiser.

The debate was followed by a networking dinner and the handing over of a check for R20,000 by Mohale and the network’s Chairperson, Linda Mayekiso, to OUT’s Johan Meyer and Jay Matlou.

The Shell LGBTI+ Network previously presented OUT with a donation in October 2015. OUT would like to sincerely thank the network for its continued support and generous contributions.
