Origins Centre in collaboration with the Wits Gender Equity Office host the launch of the book If I Stay Right Here by Chwayita Ngamlana.

The story follows the characters of a lesbian couple, Shay and Sip, who are very different in class, style, character and education. Shay is a journalism student working part time as an intern on a site that has no clear sense of direction. Sip is an unemployed varsity drop out and ex-gang member.

Their vastly different lives make it challenging for them to be the kind of couple they so desperately want to be. Unable to get untangled from the web they’ve created, Shay and Sip use money, other people and sex to fix things, but is this enough?
