Unoma Azuah

Award-winning writer and LGBT activist Unoma Azuah (Nigeria) will be reading from her collection Blessed Body: Secret lives of LGBT Nigerians.

Unoma Azuah

Forced to live invisible lives because of Nigerian’s harsh anti-LGBT laws, the courageous narrators in Unoma’s collection give voice to those Nigerians faced with the challenge of discovering and exploring their sexuality in the midst of hate and imprisonment. In spite of the political and social persecution they encounter and haunted by the specter of AIDS, they continue to endure, love and thrive.
