A collection of essays compiled by Kim Vindvogel and Kelly-Eve Koopman
They Called Me Queer edited by Kelly-Eve Koopman and Kim Windvogel
‘They Called Me Queer’ is a collection written by Africans who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual. South Africa has become known for its tolerance towards us, the LGBTQIA+ community. However, we live in a devastatingly segregated and unequal society, where sexual identities still heavily impacts every part of our daily lives. This collection of stories is a testimony to who we are. It is an assertion of our struggles, but also our triumphs, our joys.
