Feminist Profile

Afrika

Afrika is a Radical African Lesbian feminist with a passion for women, trans and gnc rights in Kenya.

A little about Afrika..

She is currently the Coordinator of Kisumu Feminists Society and the Convener of Humanizing Black Female Bodies. She organized a 5 day feminist convening that was aimed at shedding light on the Femicide crisis in Kenya and unpacking the politics around it. 

She has also partnered with different organizations to hold events that continue to ensure conversations around femicide and the rampant murder of women and girls in her country are constant had and with examples being #TotalShutDownKE kisumu, Kisumu Femicide Vigil and consistent monthly feminist meetings.

Humanizing Black Female Bodies was born out of her experiences as an African lesbian woman existing in Kenya and since the Women’s March, she involved a group of likeminded women to push her feminist agenda through.

Her feminist values are transparency, accountability and radical sister and her vision for the LBQT movement in Kenya is to create a racial and intersectional feminist space that is governed by overall feminist values and beliefs. She is also a writer, facilitator, blogger, movement builder and feminist healer.
