Here it is. The Gerald Kraak Anthology in which I am featured as one of the many brilliant writers, poets and photographers. It was launched last night and my word what a night!
It was super great finally meeting @Sisonke_Msimang (the head judge) and Mark Gevisser, whose brilliance is matched by their kindness. It was especially wonderful to meet other writers who were shortlisted in the anthology whom, together with my piece have produced such a fine body of work.
Among other things, I've always dreamt of my name living in a bookshelf which would be discovered by some kid in a remote village. Through my words, that kid would find a friend in me as I've found many friends in the delight of pages. Being part of this books is a step in that direction 😎✨. Big ups to @JacanaMedia and The Other Foundation for this great initiative that gives a platform to queer voices. This is a book that beams with stories so brilliant, they affirm, celebrate and challenge what it means to be queer in Africa! Happy #AfricaDay!
