AfroQueer is a podcast produced by the production house None on Record from our studios in Nairobi, Kenya. May 17th is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, celebrated all over the world and a moment to both raise awareness of LGBTQI issues, and also a moment to celebrate queer identities. In honor of this day, AfroQueer podcast hosted an evening of storytelling, vibrant conversations, music, and photography.
We invited the Kenyan queer community and our listeners to share their coming out stories in front of a live audience. We had five pre-planned who were guided by AfroQueer producer, Maimouna Jallow, in preparation for their storytelling performance.
