Q&A – Q for Queer, A for Africa

“Q&A – Q for Queer, A for Africa” is a photo-series visualizing young LGBTQI+ people living in different corners of the African continent. My main purpose with this series was not to portray African queer people in a victimized or somber light like they usually are portrayed in most Western media. Instead, I wanted to celebrate and empower them through portraits that were more artistic, abstract, and intimate. It is no secret that homosexuality is a highly controversial subject in most of the African continent, but I was lucky enough to encounter some young queer voices who were not afraid to expose their faces in public and who craved to be celebrated and form part of this series.

Shot in Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda.
