Details for Qzine no. 6

Name:Qzine no. 6

Qzine no 6The sixth issue of Qzine, the online magazine for and about sexual minority communities in Africa.

As the contributions to this special issue of Q-zine show, the liberation that African LGBTI poets and story-tellers envision is as much internal and psychological as external and political. Like post-colonial liberation in general, LGBTI liberation is a process of decolonizing the mind. Just as the independence movements had to overcome internalized racism, LGBTI Africans have to fight a homophobia that presents itself as nativist and patriotic but is actually a colonial hangover.

We hope this special issue of African LGBTI creative writing by a rising generation of brave and talented young writers will point the way toward a future of proud, fearless LGBTI creative expression in Africa.
