Submissions must be original works by LGBTI Africans.

African, in this sense, is understood to mean a person who was born in Africa, who is a national or resident of an African country, or whose parents are African (the offspring of at least one first generation immigrant).

Queer individuals are conceptualized as people who express and/ or identify with non-heteronormative sexual and/ or gender identities. Thus contributions are being sought from African lesbian, homosexual, asexual, pansexual and bisexual individuals who identify as cisgendered, transgendered or gender-queer.
