Rachel Kolisi and Siya

The nominees of the 2019 Feather Awards were announced at Constitution Hill today and Rachel Kolisi Made the list.

Rachel has made headlines for calling out women who are ‘after’ her husband on social media and she has always found herself trending every time she did it.

In March, Rachel Kolisi made headlines on after sharing a video online in which she alleged that 23-year-old fitness model Marike Botha sent an explicit photo to her husband, Springbok captain Siya Kolisi on Instagram.

The issue set social media on fire which led to her being trolled and Ntukza’s wife came to her defense.

Over the 11 years of its existence, the Feather Awards has evolved from an event that focused solely on the Awards aspect, to including a regular programme of LGBTI advocacy programmes that take place over the year, many of them focused on vulnerable LGBTIQ youth.

Amongst them are the LGBTIQ+ Dialogues in communities across South Africa, which were initiated in partnership with the Thami Dish Foundation as a response to the prejudice, socio-economic and structural challenges faced by LGBTIQ youth in South Africa – this years dialogues focused on legal rights, health rights and diversities in sexuality education.

“I’m really proud of what the Feather Awards has become, and look forward to it growing to even greater heights” comments Thami Kotlolo, co-founder of the Feather Awards.
