Queer Africa is a collection of unapologetic, tangled, tender, funny, bruising and brilliant stories about the many ways in which we love each other on the continent.
In recent years some African governments have attempted to clamp down on sexual diversity. But Queer Africa will not be silenced, as this anthology from across the continent makes clear. With stories of desire, disruption and dreams, of longing and love this collection is representative of the range of human emotions and experiences that abound in the lives of Africans and those of the diaspora.
This selection draws together twenty-two stories from two ground breaking anthologies published by MaThoko Books, an imprint of Gay and Lesbian Memory in Action (GALA) in South Africa. The first volume, Queer Africa: New and Collected Fiction won the 26th Lambda Literary Award. In 2017 Queer Africa 2: New Fiction added fresh material to the LGBTIQA+ literary landscape. Stories from Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Botswana, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe celebrate the diversity and fluidity of queer and African identifications and expressions.
