Q-zine is a pan-African, bilingual (English and French), arts and culture, electronic magazine by, for and about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex asexual, (LGBTQIA+) Africans both on the continent and in the Diaspora. The overall goal of the magazine is to provide an inspiring and creative outlet for LGBTQIA+ Africans and allies to celebrate, debate and explore the creativity and cultural richness of queer life in Africa and the Diaspora. Our ambition is to encourage LGBTIQ+ Africans and allies to decide for ourselves how we should be represented in the media and popular culture by taking ownership of our stories in creative and inspiring ways.
