MTV Shuga

The Project

For its fifth season, MTV Shuga headed to South Africa. The Positive Action MSM & Transgender Programme supported the inclusion of ‘Reggie’, one of the show’s characters who realises he is gay, as well as a follow-up programme of community outreach. The storyline around this character also addresses some of the issues young gay men may encounter today, including disclosure and acceptance of his sexual preference and dealing with stigma and discrimination.
