To celebrate LGBT History Month, SSAP and Hub Cymru Africa invite you to join us for an online discussion dispelling the myth that queerness is un-African. Numerous black scholars have written on pre-colonial understandings of gender and sexuality in Africa, proving that queer Africans have always existed. However, queerness is still commonly thought of as a Western import. In this discussion, we will listen to queer activists and academics discuss the history and existence of queer people across Sub-Saharan Africa over the years and how over time, acceptance of queer people has changed in Africa. There will also be time for speakers to answer questions submitted anonymously by the audience on how Wales and UK partners can work in solidarity with queer Africans.
