about

Among the first of its kind, this book is composed of works by writers from different parts of Sun-Saharan Africa, including first and second generation Africans in the diaspora. With this anthology, the editors seek to challenge and engage individuals and institutions that consider homosexuality immoral. In many African countries, homosexuals are subject to corporal punishment, imprisonment, or even death, simply because of their sexual orientation.These hateful acts are further galvanized by such slogans as "to be homosexual is un-African." The writers within these pages reject this notion and all acts of aggression against members of LGBTQ communities in Africa.
