Borders do not bound sexual identity, this is a fact of life that every community has to deal with. Kenya's rapidly modernizing society is still heavily influenced by religious and neo-colonial values and practicing homosexuality is punishable with sexual years of imprisonment. The film 7 Years explores the realities and history of this punishment and provides a glimpse into how gays and lesbians manage to live in this hostile environment. Finding a job, family relationships, and finding a partner are daily issues LGBTQ Kenyans must work through. From a pastor to a male sex worker, 7 Years gives a voice to a group of people who are accustomed to keeping quiet.
