In recent years some African governments have attempted to clamp down on sexual diversity. But Queer Africa will not be silenced, as this groundbreaking collection of stories from across the continent makes clear.

There are stories on desire, disruption and dreams; others on longing, lust and love. These stories are representative of the range of human emotions and experiences that abound in the lives of Africans and those of the diaspora.

This collection draws together twenty-two stories selected 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.
