Hopes and Dreams That Sound Like Yours - Stories of Queer Activism in Sub-Saharan Africa

Taboom Media and GALA Queer Archive are proud to launch our new anthology Hopes and Dreams That Sound Like Yours: Stories of Queer Activism in Sub-Saharan Africa to mark this year’s International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).   “We’re sharing our hopes and dreams — hopes and dreams that sound like yours.” David Ochara, Just Knock and You Can Enter   Hopes and Dreams That Sound Like Yours: Stories of Queer Activism in Sub-Saharan Africa is an anthology of stories that describe how individual queer activists in Sub-Saharan Africa have come to be where they are today.

  • At their core, our hopes and dreams are universal and bring us together.
  • Within our queerness we are connected, and collectively we can find our place in history.
  • Despite having few places to meet in person, our queer community thrives online; where we document the struggles, joys and everyday expressions of our queerness.

The authors of the stories in Hopes and Dreams depict their queer African experiences as more nuanced and diverse than what we’re used to consuming in the media. Each story shows how something beautiful and inspiring has emerged from difficult backgrounds filled with loss, isolation and identity-based violence. Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, whatever your background, we invite you to find yourself in these stories, and within queer history itself.   “Instead of allowing history to retroactively explain who we are, let us write and build our own nuanced history by telling our individual and collective stories.”
