I finally got my own copy of Queer Africa 2 at the premier book launch in Joburg on Saturday. It was an unbelievable event with people queuing outside the hall for the readings. I even got to embarrass myself by rambling about the cover art. QA2 is an anthology of stories from around the continent about the different ways we love each other, and I really feel like that spirit of love was in the air at the launch. As CHEESY as it sounds, it was magical. A massive thank you to the friends and strangers who let me sew their faces for this project that I think is both meaningful and important.
