In a new anthology, 20 human rights defenders from Sub-Saharan Africa share their activist journeys and reveal what inspires their fight for LGBTIQ equality.
More often than not, “making-of ” queer stories are characterised by experiences of hardship and pain, of rejection and discrimination. But the stories in this anthology, though sometimes difficult to confront, all come with messages of hope.
While some are deeply personal stories of self-discovery and acceptance, others chart the challenges LGBTIQ rights groups face in discriminatory environments. Common to all is the dreams for a better tomorrow.
Queer and ally artists bring each story to life with original illustrations. The result is a beautiful archive and powerful anthology of resilience.
